A scrumptiously wicked comedy that proves the female of the species is not only deadlier but wittier than the male.

Margot Mason is a bold and fearless academic who is one of the pioneers of the Feminist movement. Since the publication of her groundbreaking work The Cerebral Vagina thirty years ago, she has enjoyed world acclaim and international praise as a successful writer.

But now Margot has writer’s block.

As she sits in her country house struggling with a deadline, in walks Molly Rivers, a past student and idealist. The daughter of one of Margot’s most devoted fans. Margot’s ego is soon deflated when Molly handcuffs her to the desk and pulls out a gun…

A fabulously hilarious comedy that examines the fallout for the fans when celebrated heroes don’t deliver the expected.
