WILD HONEY is an offbeat romantic comedy about a lonely, down-on-her-luck phone sex operator who falls for one of her callers, and flies across the country to find him.


Gabby’s life is on hold; in fact life just happens to her. She’s broke, aimless, living with her mother, and working out of her old high school bedroom as a phone sex operator. She’s frustrated. Then she gets a call from Martin. He is out for more than just arousal; he is looking for a connection. He charms Gabby with his self-effacing wit, and jokes about his glamorous life as a Hollywood sci-fi screenwriter. He lives in the same city as Gabby’s estranged and successful sister, Esther. Martin is a far cry from her last boyfriend, Chicago meathead Vince. Gabby has always been a bit impulsive, so she spontaneously decides to fly out to Los Angeles, drop in on her unsuspecting sister, and meet up with the man of her dreams. But she soon learns in the City of Angels, things are more complicated than they appear.
