Unexpected side effects.
Is it really better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all? Or is it better to find a pharmaceutical remedy?
Believers is an apocalyptic romantic comedy inspired by the Grimms fairy tale, The Frog King.
The world seems poised on the brink of environmental collapse. Inside a remote pharmaceutical lab, researcher Rockwell Wise is bent on creating a love vaccine to keep his heart safe. His ex-lover, drug developer Grace Wright, wants to create a love potion to rejuvenate our love-starved planet. When Grace is hired to lead Rocky's development team in the midst of a company crisis, they become locked in a struggle over love and drugs --- with unexpected side effects.
Based on research into the real-life possibility of creating a love vaccine to keep people safe from heartbreak, Believers delivers a prescription-strength dose of whacked-out comedy!
