"Don't Bite the Apple" is a short film comedy about learning to love spiritually and forsaking the desire of the flesh. What happens when two people who love each other decide to go the spiritual route into marriage? Ladell Taylor and Michelle Woodruff decide to find out by going to their Pastor, only to find out that love really means sacrificing, and that includes sex before marriage. With the guidance of his best friend, Pastor, and faith, Ladell realizes he has to make some tough decisions and answer is this thing called love really that serious. This film tugs at the spirits and hearts of every person who is trying to live a fulfilling life of love, respect and honor in the eyes of God.
