A search for inner peace turns into a world war!


George wants to find the love of a good woman.

“Mad for love!“ is an absolute testament to the absolute fact that there is someone for everybody. The story of George is also a madcap investigation into loneliness. It’s funny and crazy but not because of shtick but because of the lunacy of circumstance and character. However George does not find the woman of his dreams, how could he?! She finds him.
