In UGLY IS A HARD PILL, Keef and Lena are "on the down low" and their love lives are scandalous! However, as they create realities that prove to be either as sweet as pie, or bitter as a hard to swallow pill, their sexuality proves to be the least of their concern in this ballsy and moving comedy. Timely messages pack powerful punches finally inspiring respect, and appreciation for karma, and reminding us of our ability to impact our own lives in positive & sometimes very ugly ways. Strong language & adult content.
