Review from Juhi S.

In an upstate New York spa town in 1885, a gynecologist treats “women’s problems” in his home office through the use of a newly designed (and effective) electric vibrator. His “successes and failures” launch seven curious men and women on a spirited quest for new adventures and happiness.
