Hooked is a romantic comedy about a man who trouble relating to women until he meets a prostitute who becomes his dating coach. This feature film will take a new approach toward the issue of human trafficking by creatively telling its story within the context of a romantic comedy.
Historically, multiple award-winning films have tackled serious and complex subject matters within the context of a comedy:
- Dr. Strangelove – Nuclear War
- I Heart Huckabees – Existentialism & Philosophy
- Being There – Consciousness
- The Invention of Lying – Faith
- Blazing Saddles – Racism & Slavery
- Four Lions – Terrorism & Religious Fanatacism
- The Great Dictator – Fascism, War & Tyranny

Hooked would like to join this legacy of imaginative storytelling.
