The Maria

Jen’s 21. She’s a hairdresser from South East London with big dreams. After growing a social media following for her work, she applies for a popular reality TV dating show to expand her platform. Her mum is concerned she may be exploited; but Jen, adamant that reality TV isn’t what it used to be, signs her contract and flies to Mallorca for a summer of love…after all, she's got nothing to lose and everything to gain…right?
