Lust for Love is a 2014 romantic comedy written, directed, and produced by Anton King. The film stars Fran Kranz as Astor, a heartbroken man who turns to his friend's ex-girlfriend, Mila (Dichen Lachman), for help winning back his former flame. Along the way, Astor learns important lessons about love, friendship, and self-discovery.

The movie opens with Astor getting dumped by his beautiful and successful girlfriend, a move that takes him by surprise. He is left feeling defeated and inferior, wondering how he will ever manage to find love again. Disheartened, he confides in his best friend, Cali (Beau Garrett), who listens patiently before suggesting a radical solution: Astor should try to win back his ex-girlfriend, the one who broke his heart in the first place.

Despite his initial reluctance, Astor agrees to Cali's plan, and the two set out on a mission to win over the girl of his dreams once again. Mila, Cali's ex, joins the group, and soon finds herself caught up in the whirlwind of Astor's love life, despite her reservations about getting involved with her friend's ex.

As they go on a series of dates and try to recreate their past memories, Astor and his ex-girlfriend begin to reconnect, and the chemistry between them starts to rekindle. However, as Astor delves deeper into his quest for love, he soon realizes that his romantic interests may not be what he thought they were. Meanwhile, Mila finds herself intrigued by Astor, and starts to see him in a new light as he evolves into a more confident and self-aware person.

Without giving anything away, the film takes some unexpected turns, including some hilarious and heartwarming moments, as Astor navigates the ups and downs of his love life while discovering that he might be his own worst enemy. Along the way, he learns valuable lessons about what it really means to love someone, and that sometimes the people we think we want to be with aren't the ones we're truly meant to be with in the end.
