The three founders of an exclusive lesbian sex app may be shattering the start-up world’s glass ceilings, but the pressures of success have begun to threaten the integrity of their friendship – and worse, their brand.
Rebecca Zhao, Sula Barkin, and McQueen de la Cruz are on top of the world. When their casual-sex app for queer women, DIVR, becomes a breakout hit, the three college buds find themselves hailed as icons of progress, representing the entire queer community in their success. But behind the scenes, things are a little more complicated: Sula has been secretly dating a straight man, McQueen has been hiding a realization about their true gender identity out of fear that it will make their “by queer women, for queer women brand” appear to be a fraud, and Rebecca, who suffers from bipolar disorder, is about to buckle under the pressure.
Icons aren’t supposed to break, or lie, or be anything other than what those they represent want them to be. As the three friends struggle to decide between the roles they play and the realities they live, it becomes clear that nothing--not even the high ground--comes without a cost.
