"Bottoms Up" is a sexual coming-of-age story enhanced by theoretical leanings and a satirical edge. Our unlikely heroine is Alice B. Hapless, a Riot Grrl with a camcorder, who is fixated on Dr. Wonderland, a silver-tongued sex therapist on late night TV. Under Dr. Wonderland's televised tutelage, Alice conducts her own "research" and quite literally, stumbles upon Butch/Femme personas, top/bottom roles and S/M practices. Eventually, the separate worlds of Alice and her media mentor collide an both characters come face-to-face in a moment of mutual self-recognition.
