Whether Kismet means destiny or division, Anna is about to test it to its very limits.
Anna is in love. Or maybe not. She’s a free spirit: definitely happy. Or is it more panicked? In any case, she is living life to the full. Or maybe to the edge. And having a glass of wine. With a big birthday just around the corner, an important new project at work, and a boyfriend she suspects might be about to ask her a significant question, Anna should feel like she has it all together. But somehow, she just doesn’t seem to be sure about, well, anything. So she gets out her phone and decides to download Kismet. Will she embrace the life she has, or risk everything for the life she imagines? With the warmth of David Nicholls and the off-kilter charisma of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag, Kismet is a love story about imperfect people in a world obsessed with perfect matches.
