Private Project

This Is Private

Royce Williams, a psychology major during the day, wearily works
nights at a strip club to make ends meet. When her psychology class assigns the students to start working with actual patients in order to graduate, Royce, feeling spread thin, cunningly merges both worlds by using her private dances as therapy sessions. This becomes wildly
successful as the men unexpectedly find satisfaction in conversing,
giving Royce a glimpse of empowered life. On the cusp of graduating with honors, her covert operation comes to a halt when her school finds out what she’s been doing. Feeling like a failure, Royce comes face to face with her own depression, only to find the support system she didn’t know she had.
