A comic tale of passion - having it, losing it, and getting it back. When Lizzie Hubbard graduated from NYU she had a Screenwriting award, a supportive boyfriend, and a bright future. Seven years later, all she has left is a sharp tongue, a bad attitude and a lousy job toiling fruitlessly as a D-Girl developing screenplays for a movie producer whose biggest hits are far in his past. Lizzie spends her days stockpiling office supplies, stealing quickies with a Brazilian bike messenger, and waiting to collect her severance benefits. But when her boss, in a last ditch effort to save his company, assigns her a seemingly hopeless script to fix, even a D- Girl as jaded as Lizzie can't resist the challenge to turn an amateur screenwriter into a player. The Loves of a D-Girl proves that second acts in love and work are definitely possible, but they can be very, very tricky to pull off.
