More Detail:

THE MALTESE HOLIDAY is a light romance streaming on Pure Flix about two single strangers whose lives intersect when they are forced into a solo vacation to Malta. Despite a rough start, the singles set out for an adventure that turns into romance. MALTESE HOLIDAY has lots of chemistry, lovely Maltese scenery, and some interesting adventure scenes. There is some drunkenness, and some sex-related dialogue. Any mention of Baby Jesus, or the meaning of Christmas, is missing. So, caution is recommended for older children and adults.

Shea, a photographer and social media blogger, has been planning a dream trip with her best friend, Kristen, for over 18 months. The exciting day arrives. The only problem is, Kristen doesn’t show up. Shea contacts Kristen. Kristen informs her that her fiancé will not allow her travel with a single girl. Disappointed, Shea decides to go on the trip alone. Simultaneously, a reluctant Michael is on his way to an intended honeymoon trip, with his brother who’s been jilted at the altar. Michael’s broken-hearted brother backs out at the last minute, while insisting that Michael go on without him so that the money already spent isn’t wasted.

On the airplane, the overly enthusiastic Shea boisterously vlogs in her seat next to a grumpy, disillusioned Michael, who’s quite vocal about his annoyance with her. Shea tries to converse with Michael when they reach the airport in Malta, but Michael’s not interested. Shea makes a video complaining about the guy she now calls “9C,” in reference to where he was seated on the plane. She quips that the highlight of the flight is that she’ll never see him again.

As fate would have it, the two singles are booked at the same hotel. After some more friction, the two agree to sight-see together while they’re there. Romance blossoms. Shea gets drunk and wants to take things too far, but Michael acts the gentleman, tucks her into bed and leaves.

The next morning, Shea feels foolish and doubts everything. Back home, Kristen relays her skepticism and distrust of Shea falling for a stranger so quickly. Has Shea’s poor decisions ruined any chance for a long-term relationship with Michael? Is this really the love she’s been seeking, or is it just wishful thinking?
