“Come and Get Your Love”

Tweetable Logline: 

Two young, broke Manhattanites must confront the reality of their dreams as they hike from Harlem to the Village one fateful summer night.

Elevator Pitch:

With only a few dollars to their name, best friends Stan and Beasley embark on a journey by foot across the length of Manhattan on a night filled with the promise of personal liberation, romance and enlightenment. Trekking through the city’s colorful maze of people and buildings, they make their way downtown where they meet two young women who will challenge their plans for the future, their notion of love, and even their friendship, making this a trip they won’t soon forget.

Diane Becker – Executive Producer
Pat Gallio – Executive Producer

About the Production:

“What better way to illustrate the struggle of young people to find personal liberation in a world dominated by money, greed and power than through a long, nightly walk through the streets of Manhattan? When you ditch the subway and resort to the power of your own two feet, New York City comes alive in all its glory. The city is beautiful, ugly, quiet, loud, kind, merciless, rich and poor—some times all in the same block. Trapped by debt, brokenhearted, hopeless—it doesn’t matter: as you pound the pavement and navigate the sidewalks no dream seems out of reach.” — Raul Barcelona
