AFTERNOON DELIGHT is the story of Rachel, a stay-at-home mom who becomes obsessed with saving a stripper named McKenna. It’s nine am. You’ve just dropped your kid off at school. Pick-up is at four. No one knows where you are, and no one needs you. So what now?
Rachel is a quick-witted and lovable, yet tightly coiled, thirty-something steeped in the creative class of Los Angeles’s bohemian, affluent Silver Lake neighborhood. Everything looks just right-chic modernist home, successful husband, adorable child and hipster wardrobe.
But when she visits a strip club to spice up her marriage and gets a private dance from McKenna, something cracks open. Rachel returns to the scene of the dance to get to know McKenna, and soon after, adopt her as a live-in nanny.
This bold move unleashes unimagined and colorful waves of change into Rachel’s life, marriage and community.
