More to Life
Maria believes she's found the perfect guy until she finds him with another woman. While her traditional family is not surprised, she blames herself. When her efforts to mend their relationship fail, she accepts an opportunity to teach English in Bangkok.
Despite never boarding an airplane before, Maria tries to adapt to the language, food, and a career that's almost foreign to her. Juggling classroom management, student loans, and an ex whose feelings grow more confusing by the day, Maria tries to find herself somewhere between the washed-out woman she's become and the bold and spirited one she used to be with the help of her understanding and kitchen-savvy co-worker, Prae, free-spirited Emma, fellow heart-breakee Tom, and her blunt, nosy yet attractive neighbour, Mitch.
She soon sees that she's not the only one who escaped to Thailand to avoid something. While her better judgment warns her to leave it be, part of her keeps digging to uncover what unsettles a carefree charmer.
