A look at romance in the age of hookups and cell phones, Mad Love follows Sloane Hudson, a rich, beautiful, recent Ivy League graduate who doesn’t believe in love or marriage but does want a baby and soon. The problem is she needs a sperm donor who passes muster. Enter Brandon, who’s got the right stats but the wrong attitude. Brandon has enough on his plate already and lives with brother Doug, who just fell in love with Katerina, the hooker from the Ukraine. Cabbage soup, a rare baseball card, and a lizard named Pogo all play a part in this romantic comedy for cynical times.
