Described as a “healing romance that resembles a storybook fantasy,” It’s Okay to Not Be Okay tells the story of a community health worker at a psychiatric ward who doesn’t have time for love and a storybook writer who has never understood love. The two will present a lovely healing romance as they begin to heal each other’s emotional scars.
