Self-pity will only get you so far.
When Alyson Salky finds that a) her lover is having an affair with her best friend, b) he takes the dog with him when he moves out, and c) a man with worse credentials is hired over her at work, well, it’s time to make some major life decisions. The neighborhood fortune teller, Madame Hope, has previously promised she can make Alyson’s wishes come true—any wish, so why not a big one? As far as Alyson can determine, the problem with her life is that she’s getting all the crap that women get, and none of the free passes that men get. It’s time to switch—it’s time to see what life is like as a man—and while Madame Hope does get that done (in exchange for Alyson’s soul), nothing really goes as planned. The devil, it turns out, has a sense of humor. But who will have the last laugh?
