Hungry for Love

Tweetable Logline: Two down-and-out New Yorkers seek the answer to all their problems by embarking on a five borough dining adventure!

Elevator Pitch: Two lonely souls meet for the first time in that big city known as New York. Though they both hit rock bottom, instead of sharing their hardships, they share their mutual passion for food! And so they embark on an all-night, five-borough dining adventure, leaving all their cares behind. They explore cultural neighborhoods, meet unique characters and eat dishes to die for. But soon they realize they can’t escape their problems and must face them head-on. So, as they begin to peel back the onion of their lives, they ultimately find out who they really are.

Production Team: 
Producer – Soojin Chung
Writer/Director – Justin Ambrosino

About the Film: I grew up working in my father’s restaurant in Brooklyn. Food was always central to the stories I’d see and hear and soon it became a personal passion of mine! I’m not interested in preaching life lessons about food consumption, nor do I judge my characters on how they behave, instead I aim to show a different side by exploring what it means to have a true passion for eating… and life. Ultimately, I believe living life to the fullest is what makes you beautiful and we all need that special someone who lets us be ourselves!
