THE STORY: A minty green pill—medication or sugar?

Louise is working on a placebo-controlled study of a new female arousal drug.

As her work in the lab navigates the blurry lines between perception and deception, the same questions pertain more and more to her life at home.

With uncanny insight and unparalleled wit, Melissa James Gibson’s affectionate comedy examines slippery truths and the power of crossed fingers.
