Sue is a 28-year-old teacher at a high school in Queens. She is popular, successful, and has a very rich fiancé. Then her kidneys begin to fail, and her fiancé dumps her. After exhausting all the conventional paths, Sue posts an ad on a dating site looking for a kidney donor and offering a year of hot sex in exchange. Josh, a naïve computer programmer, responds to her ad. Although it seems as if this could be a supremely awkward transaction, Sue realizes that this is an opportunity for her to explore her own sexuality before she has to face the world on her own again. Josh finds himself on the totally unexpected end of this relationship. Tagline - "Jean-Paul Sartre, meet Erica Jong."
