Bel Powly (The Diary of a Teenage Girl), Nathan Lane (The Birdcage), Vanessa Bayer (Saturday Night Live), and Gabriel Byrne (The Usual Suspects) traverse the landscape of life and love in this enchanting comedy.

She's a genius—but can she find her way out of her apartment and into the real world? Carrie Pilby is so invested in her intelligence—and intent on hiding from past wounds—that she has cut herself off from the world. A homework assignment from her shrink gets her out of her apartment and her comfort zone, where relating to others brings her the gifts of life—and growing pains. Will she be up to the challenge?  Bel Powley lends depth and humanity to the title role. Based on the book by Caren Lissner, Carrie Pilby is a funny, tender look at why we're on the planet.
