Everyone has a dark, ugly side-some of us just choose to hide it better than others
She’s a young woman going through a mid-twenties crisis, trying to deal with the dark and intoxicating side of life with haunting memories of an abusive ex-boyfriend, remnants of a broken family and obvious mental health issues.
Finding herself on a consistent downward spiral, she tries to grapple with the harsh realities of her existence and her incessant attraction to all things that are bad for her, which ultimately culminate in the form of a medical emergency as she overdoses, leading to a blackout in the middle of a unfamiliar place, a very public meltdown and a broken leg.
With no job, a failing art career, months of expensive therapy, a cast on her leg and a mystery man in her life, will she be able to recover from her embarrassing wastefulness? Can she defeat her infamous trait of self-sabotage and manoeuvre her way through some hard-hitting truths?
