Freshly divorced, down-and-out, single mother, Paula Wheeler, gets abducted by a literature-obsessed fetishist who dresses her in bear-themed fur lingerie and makes her read to him aloud from Uncle Tom's Cabin, then sets her free, unscathed. This traumatic event precipitates Paula's quest to uncover the world of fetishism and more importantly fetish fulfillment for monetary gain (hers) so she can provide for herself and her beloved tween daughter, Maude. It’s like like "Weeds" only with fetish porn.

Director Biography - Adria Tennor

Adria Tennor earned her BFA in stage directing and acting at New York University and Playwrights Horizons Theater School. She began her career as an actress, and her first professional job was playing a twelve-year old boy looking at porn in Tompkins Square park in Hal Hartley’s Amateur, which premiered in the Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes. She works regularly in television and film and is most known for her recurring role on Mad Men as well as in the Academy Award winning film, The Artist. Dissatisfied with the amount of work available to women, Tennor began writing her own material, performing stand up early in her career and then spinning her material into a rave-reviewed one-woman show, StripSearch, about finding love and happiness with the help of a 12-foot pole. Another monologue she wrote and performed, Pie in the Sky, was published in the anthology about lust gone wrong – Worst Laid Plans: When Bad Sex Happens to Good People alongside works by Whitney Cummings, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Allison Brie and Laraine Newman. Tennor made her producing debut on horror spoof, Smothered, shot on location in Baton Rouge. Her directorial debut was a self-penned childhood drama, Cracked, starring Marguerite Moreau, which garnered awards and laurels around the country. Her second film, Pie, starring Jessica Paré, was a favorite on the festival circuit in 2018, also garnering awards and laurels internationally. Her ambition is to create and tell more stories for and about women and to foster opportunities for a diverse point of view in theater, film and television.
