In the film, Dobrev essays the role of hopeless romantic Natalie who thinks she is in love with handsome Tag (Darren Barnet) but soon learns that she has been catfished by his friend Josh (Jimmy O. Yang). 

'Love Hard' is slated to release on the video-sharing platform on November 5.

This rom-com has been directed by Hernan Jimenez, with screenplay by Danny Mackey and Rebecca Ewing. In addition to Dobrev, Barnet and Yang, other cast members include James Saito, Harry Shum Jr., Mikaela Hoover, Heather McMahan, Rebecca Staab, Althea Kaye, Matty Finochio and Fletcher Donovan.

The official synopsis for the movie reads, "Hopeless romantic but eternally single LA journalist Natalie (Nina Dobrev) thinks things are beginning to look up when she swipes right on a dreamy guy from the East Coast, Tag (Darren Barnet). Taking a leap of faith she jumps on a flight to surprise her crush for the holidays, only to discover that she's been catfished by Tag's childhood friend who is equally unlucky in love, Josh (Jimmy O. Yang). This lighthearted romantic comedy chronicles her attempt to reel in love."
