Everything these days is online – including how a woman is meant to meet Mr Right. But, Sonia wonders, as she joins up to the dating app, how can someone decide simply by looking at somebody’s face that they’re the right person for her? And as she swipes with little to no matches, her self-esteem crumbles, her confidence affected as she wonders “What’s wrong with me?”
Past history meets present as she continues on the carousel, emotions building up and tearing down, being used and discarded like an old sweet wrapper and the crushing knowledge that she’s in her late 30s and her clock is ticking. She needs to meet Mr Right right now. She turns to alcohol to mask the fear that she will never find him but refuses to recognise that her crutch is crippling her – until it’s too late. As the overall pressure of society, her addiction and her own fears weighs her down, will Sonia overcome everything that is expected of her or will she succumb to her choices and live a life half-lived?
