Synopses & Reviews
Recently separated (while technically still a newlywed) Charlotte is at a crossroads. She wants very much to do the “right” thing, but feels torn between going back to a marriage that might be doomed and living the unpredictable terror that can be single life. With everything so up in the air, Charlotte doesn’t know whose advice to trust: her best friend who just wants her to be happy, her cynical co-worker who isn’t afraid to tell her when she’s acting like a crazy person, or the bitter wacko who has taken residence in her brain, making Charlotte feel like she might have become an actual crazy person. Divorce is expensive, and Charlotte needs to figure out how to pull herself back together without losing her savings. In a desperate quest to find strength, confidence, and answers, she decides to try something new: roller derby.
