An dark comedy centering around Barry Egan, the socially impaired owner of a small business—distributing novelty toilet plungers—in the San Fernando Valley. Dominated by
seven sisters, and constantly negotiating his own manhood, he is unlikely to find romance
unless romance finds him. In an attempt to resolve his loneliness, while having a vulnerable
moment, Barry contacts a phone sex operator who, in turn threatens him with blackmail.
Connected to a larger business network, the operator send some thugs on a mission from
Utah to California, to follow, scare, and extort Barry. Barry becomes desperate, until a new
door opens in his life. Therefore, when one of his sisters fixes him up with a lovely young
English woman, Lena--who has rather quirky qualities herself--his emotions go haywire,
fluctuating between lust, self-doubt, and uncontrollable rage. Nonetheless, Barry will embark
upon whatever adventure it takes, just to have a shot at true romance.
