Radical feminist ex-strippers Agnes and Valerie scour the country on a murderous rampage, blogging their exploits in gruesome detail. Meanwhile, scruffy screenwriter Owen tries to bang out his magnum opus in a hotel room while his buddy Rodney indulges some baser instincts. When Owen writes the strippers into his screenplay, reality unravels. Can Jane Fonda—yes, that Jane Fonda—prevent complete chaos?
