Synopsis

Rachel is a quick-witted and lovable, yet tightly coiled, thirty-something steeped in the creative class of the bohemian, affluent Silver Lake neighborhood in Los Angeles. Everything looks just right - chic modernist home, successful husband, adorable child and a hipster wardrobe. So why is she going out of her gourd with ennui? Deadened by the stultifying realities of preschool auctions, a lackluster sex life and career that's gone kaput, Rachel visits a strip club to spice up her marriage and meets McKenna, a stripper whom she becomes obsessed with saving. She decides to adopt McKenna as her live-in nanny, and this bold move unleashes unimagined and colorful waves of change into her life and community.
