Set in London and written, directed by and starring local talent Lisa Gornick, this is the story of a chance encounter between an illustrator who is working on a “how to” sex book and a well-known author, which develops into a complex and revealing mentor-protégé relationship. Funny, insightful and highly risqué, our protagonist begins to question everything she knows about sex, love and art. Warning: the film contains some graphic scenes and numerous sexual references.
