Viviane is a neurotic, struggling actress given to childish flights of fancy. Kazembe, her actor ex-boyfriend, had been the only constant in her life for the past four years until their recent breakup. On a whim, V decides to move to Los Angeles to revive her dwindling career. She thinks she can just skip out of town, until her best friend Sophie plans a surprise party and invites Kazembe. New York, I Love You takes us on Viviane’s journey through love, loss, and goodbyes in snapshots of a dying relationship set against the backdrop of one of the world’s most beloved cities. But can Viviane really leave New York and Kazembe, the love of her life, behind?
