That Hungry Love

Sue and Lee have an insatiable hunger for each other, but love doesn’t always run smooth for these overweight star-crossed lovers. 'That Hungry Love' is a touching tale of people desperate for affection, but fearful of revealing themselves and bingeing on love. In this very contemporary comedy drama Sue and Lee’s appetite for each other is an uplifting, beautifully sweet story with a a question: Does anyone love in moderation? Probably not - once you’ve had a taste of true love it’s hard to not to over indulge and lose yourself.
