Can science control who you might fall in love with? Brilliant biochemist Marissa has had a nasty break-up and decides that in order to prevent it from happening again, she’ll have to take matters into her own hands. So, she develops a serum to block the oxytosin hormone in women (the hormone that supposedly causes the “love” emotion) and she and her two roommates, go-go dancer Lucas and sex how-to writer Robyn, test out the effects of the oxytosin-blocker. Told through the structure of the scientific method, what follows is a struggle between heart and head, science and intuition, gender roles, and relationship rules. Can Marissa find love on her own terms?
