Adult World

When life gets hard, rise to the occasion.


Adult World
A naïve, awkward aspiring poet is stuck living with her parents in a bland upstate New York town. She is certain of her yet-to-be-acknowledged literary greatness but, desperate for income, she accepts a job at Adult World, the local sex shop. She balances her work amongst the pornography and sex toys by fiercely pursuing a surefire kick start for her success: a mentorship with a reclusive, crusty and alcoholic writer.
