How far will you go to get what you want? Will you be the same person if you finally do? When star sex blogger and memoirist Ethan tracks down his idol, the gifted but obscure novelist Olivia, he finds they both crave what the other possesses. As attraction turns to sex, and they inch closer to getting what they want, both must confront the dark side of ambition and the near impossibility of reinventing oneself when the past is only a click away.

SEX WITH STRANGERS features set design by Andromache Chalfant (2ST's Bachelorette), costume design by ESosa (2ST's By The Way, Meet Vera Stark), lighting design by Japhy Weideman(The Nance), and sound design byFitz Patton (I'll Eat You Last).
