This documentary will look into the nature of Love Addiction. It will search to understand what creates the addiction and describe the heights and lows this remarkable addiction causes. The film must be told with respect through the lives and personal stories of Love Addicts. Love Addiction is a very delicate matter and in order to fully understand this addiction it is very important to experience it through the eyes of the addicts. This personal approach is important in order to create identification and thereby sympathy.
