The Perfect Picture
In what seems like a perfect life, three beautiful young women make bold attempts to change their lives even when destiny plays its joke on them. With a marriage that seems almost doomed from the beginning, to an affair with an unlikely candidate and the endless pursuit of love, the three friends will learn the harsh lessons of life, the challenges of marriage, the fatality of falling in love and the rewards of having a good laugh in the mist of sorrow.

What does a woman do when she finds out after marriage that, she cannot get a sexual reaction from her husband? What does a young woman, who finally decides to settle down with only one man do when she realizes that she is not the only woman in her man's life?

And what does a successful career woman do when her heart is split between a successful business tycoon and poor air-condition mechanic? The answers to these are carefully woven into the lives of these three friends and they unfold with humorous and unexpected outcomes.

'The Perfect Picture stars Jackie Appiah, Lydia Forson, Naa Ashorkor Mensah-Doku, Adjetey Annang, Nana Kwame Osei Sarpong with Chris Attoh and introducing Kweku Sintim-Misa.
