WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
Mandy (Piper), a single mother who struggles with confidence issues in the midst of a feminist revolution, meets and begins a relationship with Pete (Bill), a traditionalist man searching for a restored sense of male identity. Together, they form an extremely dysfunctional union that can only end in disaster for themselves and those around them…
