This is an adventure that follows the lives of four female friends, each with drama in the love department. Is it love or just a game? The chit chatting and lamentations never end, with mixed fortunes of agonizing and joyous experiences. Escalations in relationships saddled with broiled tests of fidelity. Enduring all the entanglement amongst four friends was trepidatious, and the inclusion of a fifth attempts to derail the fragile serenity. Whereas 4Play was an ensued tale and did unfold crunched and relatable episodes of inadmissible reality; 4Play Reloaded leaves you in total captivation and awe.
