BDSM rocks! Or, maybe not really. As a fuckbunny with a pig’s nose, Ann, who is in her mid-thirties, is looking for sexual fulfillment. The results are hilarious.

Ann, a grumpy, sarcastic and thoroughly disillusioned thirtysomething, has never had a conventional relationship. Instead, she submits in role-playing to sex friends, most of whom she meets on the internet. She has been in a relationship of this kind with Allen for years, but they don’t know much about each other. Professionally, she pursues a real bullshit job, with unclear objectives and limited prospects. And the conversations with her parents, as much as they love her, are mostly limited to absurdly superficial small talk. - Droll scenes and perfectly timed punchlines follow one another in quick succession, characterized by classic Jewish-American humor, which is always also self-deprecating. Free of any vanity, director Joanna Arnow plays the main character – and probably also herself a little bit.


Director, actress and writer Joanna Arnow lives in Brooklyn, New York. Her filmography includes the Berlinale Jury Prize winner ›Bad at Dancing‹, ›Laying Out‹, and the personal documentary ›I Hate Myself :)‹.
