Love doesn’t always have to be sweet or feature something grand. Like salt in food, it’s the small, often-overlooked things that actually enhance the experience.
Theo wants to join the workforce. He participates in marketing competitions to gather enough confidence to do that, but loses against Zack, a freshman in the Management Department. They both hold a grudge and glare at each other on campus, especially when Zack takes the last serving of Theo’s favorite meatballs at the canteen.
However, due to the budding romance between Theo’s classmate Maya and Zack’s roommate Will, all four of them team up for the next marketing competition, brieFEST. As if creating a Valentine’s Day campaign proposal for table salt wasn’t challenging enough, Theo also has to deal with Zack’s annoying tongue clicking, various tensions between teammates, his own competence-related insecurities, and—worst of all—an unwelcomed, growing attraction toward Zack.
Meanwhile, the team still has to finish a project that stands a chance of getting first place at brieFEST. How will they do that within a month with so many things going on for all four of them?
The only solution is throwing spaghetti at the wall—and hoping something sticks.
