She's developing what they hope will be the first Viagra drug for women that wins FDA approval to treat a new disease: Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD). Liz plans to create a movie about science and pleasure but she soon begins to suspect that her employer, along with a cadre of other medical companies, might be trying to take advantage of women (and potentially endanger their health) in pursuit of billion dollar profits. A powerful look inside the medical industry and the marketing campaigns that are reshaping our everyday lives around health, illness, desire - and that ultimate moment: orgasm. (2009, 73 min.)
