Steve Coogan and Sarah Solemani write and star in this timely drama that skewers and satirises the complex state of contemporary sexual politics.
Cameron, an acclaimed film producer, needs to detoxify his latest movie or face ruin. Bobby, an ambitious feminist filmmaker, has what he needs to get ‘woke’. All they need to do is reshoot an inappropriate sex scene. How hard can it be? But as Bobby and Cameron bounce between gender tension and a creeping attraction, a toxic sex scene becomes the tip of the iceberg. Who really knows how to navigate post-woke sex? How fluid are our politics and how political are our fluids?
