An Irishman's surprise visit to his NYC girlfriend results in being snubbed, then involved with a conniving, thieving fun loving female.
We Just Met is a unique twist on the romantic comedy genre, fusing the elements of friendship, affection, betrayal and the emerging diverse cultures with a classic love American Hollywood trope. Set in New York City, the story captures what it means to surrender to love through the metaphor of a foreigner (Liam) thrust into a totally unfamiliar, unforgiving, and quintessentially American urban environment, where is forced to adapt.
The film's signature moment, about half-way through, blends the traditional story arc of a Hollywood romantic comedy with one of Bollywood's most enduring conventions -- a dance number. As spontaneous and unexpected as it is cleverly organic and undeniably New York, this sequence is a melting pot of American culture and elevates "We Just Met" to be a transcendent audience experience, simultaneously familiar, and brand new.
Muneeb Hassan has been working on this project since last fall and has written more than 103 drafts of "We Just Met." Thematically autobiographical, the film translates Muneeb's experience/observation as a Pakistani living in New York City into a story of risk, luck, love, and cross-cultural fusion. Open-hearted, optimistic, and just a little bit mischievous, the story is a portrait of its storyteller. Upon viewing this story, the audience will recall the times in their lives when they made all the wrong/right mistakes in the name of love. There will always be impediments along the way, but nothing is as satisfying as completely letting oneself go to the, at times, frightening, but always warm embrace of love. People will take note of the intense feelings their hearts can create, and will have the desire to strengthen, foster, or cultivate such feelings anew. They will open themselves, without fear.
