Taking a contemporary spin on the Shakespearean classic Romeo & Juliet,
The Romance is a romantic comedy that tells the tale of love, social
class, and acceptance that entwines a man and a woman from two
different worlds. Twenty four year old Cynthia Miller is living life in
upscale Central Park West while the love of her life twenty six year
old Jacob lives and toils in Harlem. But when her family threatens to
break them up, will their love sustain the relationship? How much
family objection is too much for a relationship to handle?
Mr. Miller, a bank president and Mrs. Miller a district office
superintendent go out of their way to sabotage the relationship. Also
contending with the interference of the Miller family is Jacob's sister
Jenise's dislike for Cynthia. Jacob is torn between his love for
Cynthia and their social and economic differences.
