From #thecompetitionthefilm web site: “Thrust on a course of female empowerment, Lauren Mauldin becomes the voice of a generation when, after one too many bad-behaving boyfriends, she launches a blog promoting “The PIG Theory” to thousands of followers. The PIG Theory protects its followers from heartache by insisting that you can enjoy all that romance has to offer, but only for six months. At this “Point of Infidelity and Guilt,” you must protect yourself by taking the power position and breaking up before your mate becomes unfaithful. “Any weakness leading you to continue a relationship beyond the prescribed period leads to irreparable heartache and pain.”
Lauren is a beacon of light for her obsessed followers. Her blog followers number in the millions, and soon book publishers come calling with lucrative offers. But Lauren’s family are concerned that she is teetering on the edge of insanity. Lauren’s mother has had enough and wants some grandbabies already. Lauren’s sister Gena wants her to shut down the blog and find true happiness. Gena decides to introduce Lauren to the perfect man: the handsome, undefeated, women’s advocate lawyer, Calvin Chesney. They are intellectual equals and immediately connect. But will Lauren’s loyalty to the PIG Theory and her followers force her to break everyone’s hearts? Can clever Calvin find a way to stop her?
An idea strikes. A competition! Calvin will pick 5 friends who have been in a relationship for longer than six months, and Lauren will pick the enchantress to be their downfall. If 3 out of 5 cheat, Calvin has to walk away and never speak to Lauren again. But if 3 out of 5 resist temptation, Lauren must shut down her blog and truly open her heart to Calvin. Their unsuspecting friends will be the challengers who will determine their destiny.The game is on! But sudden twists and turns take everyone off guard, and soon things aren’t going as anyone expected. What secret is Calvin keeping from Lauren? How far will Lauren go to prove her theory right? And what tricks does Gena have up her sleeve? It’s a battle to the end, winner takes all. And all players will leave their hearts on the field.
