Bree Torres is a 28-year-old workaholic and advertising exec who decides to explore her fraught relationship with sex and pleasure, after being tasked to manage the agency's newest client: a sex toy company.
A comedic short film
SHORT FILM SYNOPSIS: 28-year-old Bree is fine. She's a respected brand manager at an advertising agency, lives in a sunny apartment, and her roommate is also her best friend. Sure she's going through an extended quarter-life crisis and is single AF, but that’s what birth charts and dating apps are for. So when Bree is tasked to manage a new sexual wellness account at work, her roommate Abby, encourages Bree to explore her relationship with her body. Through this, Bree begins to question everything she’s learned (and hasn’t learned) about sex, pleasure and desire. But after a series of mishaps, false starts and few bad dates with a guy named Chris, Bree decides to take matters into her own hands… literally.
I'm 28, single, and the only man that is regularly calling my phone is Paco from Sallie Mae. - Bree
And...you've never had an orgasm. Don't forget that. - Abby
