But she quickly grows restless, and when an old flame suddenly turns up, she comes to reassess her past. The film will use its international title – “Third Is My First” on Netflix.
Unlike the usual romantic comedies, Third Is My First has a lot more to offer with its different take on love and romance. It is a Rom-Com that not just won the hearts of the audience but also took home accolades and nods from international film festivals such as the Hawaii International Film Festival, London Film Festival, Canada International Film Festival, and Jersey City TV & Film Festival.
