She's Lost Control


Fiercely independent and in her mid-30s, Ronah works as a sexual surrogate in New York City, teaching her clients the very thing they fear most -- to be intimate. Her life unravels when she starts working with a volatile new client, Johnny. "She's Lost Control" explores the thin, ever-blurring line between professional and personal intimacy in the modern world.
