Storyline

Athena Cockburn suffers from heavy migraines and lost her vim and vigor. Her boyfriend, Jacob York, has enough of the stagnating sex life with her and comes up with the brilliant idea to trick her into taking a fake pill to treat her migraines. The caveat of this placebo pill however is the extreme side effect: an exploding libido! His plan works out but the initial fun turns quickly into frustration when he can't keep up with her anymore.

funny, kinky indie comedy

I really liked this movie.

It's got a different approach to a classic relationship issue. The actors are cast well and fit their role. I especially liked the performance of the lead actress. The story has a good build up to a slightly unexpected ending. I read in an interview, that it was a very low budget movie. Considering this fact, this movie is actually great made and doesn't look cheap. In fact I was quite impressed by the cinematographer. Some dialogues don't feel natural but it doesn't take away from the whole movie experience.

I hope there will be another movie from this director.
