The Perfect Picture tells a tale of friends who had drama in the lives in the past and have now experienced new beginnings. In fact, they are saddled with more issues in their not-so-fairy-tale relationships. It’s a rollercoaster ride of imperfect husbands, repentant ex-boyfriends, and daring romantic exploits. It is indeed a romantic story that encompasses growing up, finding new relationships, breaking old ones and everything in between.
