Directed by Madeleine Olnek | 2013

With Lisa Haas, Jackie Monahan, Alex Karpovsky, Susan Ziegler, Sally Sockwell, Deb Margolin

"Odd, poignant, both profane and strangely innocent, and above all, shockingly funny...a comic bonanza of mind games, sexual stereotypes and unexpected love."
—The Huffington Post

Fresh off the bus in New York City, Margaret embarks on a career as a lesbian prostitute, servicing upper-class Manhattanites under the tutelage of Jo, a straight and streetwise grifter with a knack for picking up women. Olnek’s raucous buddy comedy and Independent Spirit Award nominee (co-written with the two stars, Lisa Haas and Jackie Monahan) is an all-female riff on My Own Private Idaho by way of Midnight Cowboy, filled with eccentric characters and clever cameos, including Girls’ Alex Karpovsky as a shady merkin salesman.
