When a phone sex operator is accepted into a PhD program across the globe, she must confront her devout Catholic mother, a codependent hoarder, with her difficult decision.

Amy, a 30-year-old phone sex worker, chats with a client through her headset. She's interrupted by her live-in mother, Constancia, a devout Catholic who openly disapproves of her daughter's new career. Little does Constancia know that her only daughter is secretly planning to make some major career changes, like moving across the globe to become a sex therapist… When the truth is revealed, the two women must learn to see the world through each other’s perspective, or let each other go forever…
