Synopsis by Nathan Southern
A dissatisfied wife and mother strives to find greater meaning in her life -- with outrageous results -- in this offbeat, contemporary comedy-drama. Thirtysomething Rachel (Kathryn Hahn) seemingly has everything a young woman could want: a handsome, devoted, successful husband; beautiful children; considerable wealth; and a chic home in L.A.'s exclusive Silver Lake neighborhood. Inside, however, she's drowning in dissatisfaction. In a desperate bid for a sense of purpose, Rachel visits a local strip joint and begins to fixate on the idea of "saving" McKenna (Juno Temple), a stripper at the club whom she promptly hires as a live-in nanny for her children. It's a rash decision, and one that sends not merely ripples but shockwaves throughout the surrounding community, as Rachel tries to draw on the situation to attain a clearer and sharper sense of her own identity. First-timer Jill Soloway directs from her original script.
