I Don’t Love You
Directed by Mara De La Rosa
Benji and Malou are in love…maybe. They’re newlyweds with a baby on the way. But Malou is hiding a secret that’s shocking enough to tear their world apart. A story about how far we’re willing to go for love, I Don’t Love You, unravels in true—and hilarious—telenovela style. Secrets and lies are brewing, and soon a dark truth will be served over dinner.
