Semi-Soet

Synopsis

Workaholic Jaci will go to any lengths to protect the boutique advertising agency she works for from being bought and dismantled by a ruthless businessman known as ‘The Jackal’. Hope exists in the form a huge contract for a prestigious wine farming family. But winning this contract won’t be simple. Jaci needs to convince the farm owner that she lives up to his company’s ideals of family values and commitment by proving that she is in a loving, long term relationship.

Desperate to appear to be living the balanced life she has long discarded, Jaci decides to hire a model to pretend to be her fake fiancé for the day.

At the pitch meeting the facade seems to have worked until the client insists her and her fake fiancé come away for the weekend to experience the wine farm before she pitches for the contract. Things start to get very complicated, very quickly for poor Jaci, especially since the man she has hired to be her stand-in-fiancé, is the very ‘Jackal’ himself who is trying to sink her company.

Opsomming

Selferkende werkholis, Jaci van Jaarsveld, sal alles in haar vermoë doen om te keer dat die advertensiemaatskappy waarvoor sy werk oorgeneem word deur ‘n genadelose sakeman bekend as ‘The Jackal’. Haar enigste hoop is om ‘n groot kontrak los te slaan vir ‘n wynlandgoed wat hul wyne internasionaal wil bemark. Makliker gesê as gedaan, veral as die wynboer vereis dat die persoon wat sy wyn gaan bemark in ‘n gevestigde liefdesverhouding moet wees.

Uit desperaatheid besluit Jaci om ‘n model te huur om hom voor te doen as haar verloofde. Gevolglik neem sy aan dat die eerste aantreklike man wat by hulle kantore instap deur die modelagentskap gestuur is.

Als blyk seepglad te verloop met die ontmoeting met die wynboer, totdat hy vir Jaci en haar ‘verloofde’ wynplaas toe nooi vir ‘n naweek waartydens sy teen die opposisie sal moet meeding vir die kontrak. En wie is die opposisie? Jaci se eks-verloofde, Markus Rossouw.

Net wanneer Jaci dink dat sy in volle beheer is besef sy dat haar kamstige verloofde, JP, die einste ‘Jackal’ is wat haar maatskappy probeer sink.
