Chasing Taste



  • Down-and-out writer Chase Guidry is transformed overnight into NYC's next big food critic before a freak accident robs him of his senses of taste and smell. In order to keep his new-found fame and purse the love of his life, he relies on a team of super "smellers" and "tasters" to fake his reviews. Riding his lie for as long as it will carry him, Chase is bound for a collapse of epic proportion.
