Let’s face it; everyone could use a little escapism these days. That’s exactly what Netflix delivers with its latest romantic comedy, Falling Inn Love.

When city girl Gabriela (Christina Milian) spontaneously enters a contest and wins a rustic New Zealand inn, she teams up with bighearted contractor Jake Taylor (Adam Demos) to fix and flip it.”

Falling Inn Love borrows from similarly themed films such as Under the Tuscan Sun and A Good Year. The film follows Gabriela as she tries to recover from the simultaneous loss of both her job and her relationship. And where better to do that than in New Zealand? There she takes on the task of rennovating the inn that she’s won… with a little help. Grammy-nominated singer and actress Christina Milian (The Oath; Be Cool) plays Gabriela opposite Unreal’s Adam Demos (Jake).

As seen in the trailer, the two share a playful, flirtatious chemistry as Jake helps Gabriela to fix up the dilapidated inn, and find herself in the process. Of course, things don’t always go quite as planned.

Falling Inn Love, Netflix’s newest rom-com

Roger Kumble directs the light-hearted rom-com from writers Elizabeth Hackett and Hilary Galanoy. Falling Inn Love also stars Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, Anna Jullienne, and Clair Chitham. You can read the full synopsis below:

Gabriela Diaz’s (Christina Milian) San Francisco design firm folds the week of her break-up. Inspired by a potent concoction of wine and Wi-Fi, she successfully enters a contest to “Win an Inn” overlooking New Zealand’s countryside. Thousands of airline miles later, she discovers The Bellbird Valley Farm boasts a crumbling facade, floorboard-treading goat, and meddling neighbor who covets the space. Eager to renovate and sell the property fast, she partners with Jake Taylor (Adam Demos), the Kiwi contractor and volunteer firefighter observing much of her city-girl culture shock. Once the final fixtures are hung, she’s hesitant to leave him, the inn, and the inviting community that nurtured her creative side.”
