Frankie has been dumped 11 times in a row. When Thomas, the love of her life, sends his kid brother, Wilbur, to break up with Frankie on his behalf, that makes 12. Seeking an explanation for her cursed love life, she is informed by Wilbur of a new genetic discovery: LOVE TYPE D, or the “loser in love” gene. Upon further research, Frankie learns that everyone is either lucky in love (a “dumper”) or genetically predisposed to romantic misfortune (a “dumpee”). After testing positive for the type D gene—and with only hobbies and celibacy as suggested therapy—Frankie rounds up her fellow dumpee coworkers to assess their newfound medical situation. Do they give up? What’s the point of dating if they already know how things will end? With no cure in sight, Frankie is determined to alter her genetic pattern with a plan that will (hopefully) change her romantic future. LOVE TYPE D is an unconventional rom com fit for a world fascinated by both genetic testing and finding “the one.” — D.O.
