Djansi’s first Hollywood film tells the story of Natalie, a young teacher who dreams of a happy, domestic life with her husband, Leon. However, Natalie has to pick up the pieces of her former life once Leon leaves her for his “outside” family. She falls in love with another man, Darrell, only to discover that he harbors secrets of his own. Darrell’s wife will not grant him a desired divorce, and Natalie does not know whether he will be a lasting, true love. Although the film belongs to the romantic genre, And Then There Was You is also full of surprising plot twists.
