Overview

It's time to enter the world of Max Strummer, a 30-something doctor who moonlights as a stand-up comedian. His medical practice is booming, his comedy career is taking off, and his three-year relationship with Sarah is thriving. But everything crashes the night he catches Sarah in bed with another woman. Following a painful break-up, Max slumps into a deep depression, from which nothing can lift him. Until he meets Orlanda. Stunning, vivacious, sexy, a successful photographer with a penchant for erotic pictures, Orlanda seems like the woman of Max's dreams. But as their relationship develops, Max begins to have doubts - and finds himself pulled between Sarah's desperate attempts to win him back and Orlanda's determined efforts to expand his sexual comfort zone. As he tries to cope with the problems of his private life, the mishaps of his medical practice, the chaos of his comedy career, and the trauma of his best friend's struggle with cancer, Max finds himself sinking into a sticky mess of sexual hang-ups.
