No, rape is not funny – but having a sense of humor does help in dealing with the aftermath. Edie, a record label talent scout, is raped by her date after a night out. With the help of good friends and a therapist, she attempts to recover and figure out a way to live with the impact the assault has had on her friendships, her relationships with men, and her sex life. Her life is further complicated by conflicts at work and the appearance of Philip—an intriguing new love interest. Edie must figure out what a romantic and sexual relationship looks like for her when the perfect guy turns up at the worst possible time. This romantic comedy moves beyond “girl meets guy,” dealing with issues of female sexual dysfunction, the ubiquity of rape as part of the female experience, and misogyny in the workplace.
