[DEBUT] After four years of dating, Josh is shattered when girlfriend Jade turns down his romantic New Year’s Eve marriage proposal on the famous London Eye. Compounding his heartbreak, she tells him she has been seeing someone else. Josh and Jade work at a hotel and live in a flat owned by her father, thus Josh finds himself jobless, homeless, and single. Returning to the tiny village of his childhood and life with his zany mother and frugal dad, Josh attempts to start over. Following a chance conversation with his Pap, Josh decides to let every major decision he makes be decided by the flip of a coin. Things start getting back on track and Josh credits the talisman, but will he trust the coin to decide his future when it comes to career and romance?
