The digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Allen Media Group will release the former film across VOD platforms on July 19, unveiling the latter on August 16.
Another Love Story tells the story of Miriam Ramos (Isadora Ortega), a budding author living in the U.S., who falls deeply in love with the man of her dreams. Until it quickly turns into the tragic nightmare that not even her closest friends could see coming. Ortega and Morson wrote the film and produced it alongside Carole Copeland.

Stephen Edwards directed and produced the pic from Gregory Ballard’s script, which was based on his own story. Lannette Turicchi, Patrick Olson and James Duda exec produced it, with Christopher Lovasz, Peter J. D’Arruda and Maisy-Kay Kendrick serving as associate producers.
