No, rape isn't funny - but having a sense of humor does help in dealing with the aftermath. When Edie, a record label talent scout, is raped by her date, she has no idea what her post-rape future will look like. Navigating sex, pleasure, work, friends, and her forever-changed mental state in the aftermath of her assault is hard enough. But when the perfect guy turns up at the worst possible time, Edie has to figure out what romance and sex mean to her after her assault. This offbeat feminist romantic comedy moves beyond "girl meets guy," dealing with sexual dysfunction, the ubiquity of rape culture, and what recovery looks like in a world filled with reminders of your assault
