[Fiction.] Watch the sparks fly, as a Minneapolis mom and her daughter vacation in the sexy tourist hotspot Puerto Vallarta.
Some American vacationers find themselves entangled in Puerto Vallarta’s Romantic Zone, a place where tourists can find exceptional dining, exciting nightlife, and spectacular sunsets. When the mother and daughter arrive after a family wedding in Minneapolis, the daughter rebels against her over-protective mother. She wants to frolic in the Romantic Zone, where a local waiter falls for her. Adding to the scene, her brother’s college roommate also shows up, so he could avoid being best man at the wedding. And the happy couple? They were supposed to be honeymooning in Aruba.
See what happens when those spectacular sunsets culminate in moonlit nights. Lives and secrets unravel, as everyone who wasn’t supposed to be in Puerto Vallarta shows up. Knock until the Dog Barks is howling good fun!
