Ellie and Tess are young, struggling actresses and feminists who regularly face challenges as women in the film industry. From the pay gap, to nudity in film, to body shaming, to a string of female characters who are defined by their relationship with the male protagonists, they regularly have to choose between accepting roles that misrepresent women, or not working at all. After a day of particularly trying auditions, Ellie and Tess decide to write and produce their own film: a multi-genre movie that takes the stereotypes that face each gender in the industry and flips them around.
