Jude is American, Mina is Italian. They meet by chance in New York City. A whirlwind romance ensues – they get married and she becomes pregnant. It is a brand new life for both of them. From the early months of pregnancy, a strong motherly instinct signals to Mina that she is bearing a special child.
In order to respect nature, she obsessively protects him from the contamination of the outside world and struggles to preserve his total purity. Jude, for the love of Mina, follows her lead, but only up to the point when he faces a terrible truth: his son is not growing and his life is in danger. Jude must act quickly. A pervasive battle of suspicions and resentments begins between Jude and Mina which, in a desperate search for a solution leads to an emotional showdown.
HUNGRY HEARTS is a story about the strength of love.
