Karma, up-tight NYC fashion editor and corporate climber at Bangles Magazine, becomes a poet after losing her job, moving in with her wacky new-age therapist half-sister and meeting Mr. Wrong, owner of the local poetry cafe. Written by

The movie came about after director Jill Wisoff, seeking a writing/acting partner to help contribute to an original script with out of the ordinary women's parts, met Carol Lee Sirugo while they were doing extra work on a Richard Benjamin film, Marci X (2003), in Brooklyn. The script got going right away after they hit upon the idea of taking on the roles of sisters. See more »
This is a wonderfully creative and imaginative film. The characters are outrageous and over the top in a Rocky Horror (Cult Classic) kind of way. Carol Sirugo is charming as Karma. The movie has a John Waters meets Charles Ludlam kind of feel. It definitely has that "Theatre of the Ridiculous" flavor. It's campy, larger than life and extremely funny.
I really got a kick out of the puppets and poetry. Some of the poems where so outlandish, I found myself hysterically laughing. Super soundtrack and great costumes! Kudos for pushing the envelope and creating a risky, unique and entertaining independent film.
