For a long time I've dreamed about directing a documentary, but the same question kept circling back to me: a documentary about what? 
When I met Wendi Starling I quickly realized that I was in contact with a very special human being, so special that it motivated me to start video recording her life and start the production of a documentary about her.

This is the story of a woman stand-up comic living in New York who's just trying to be happy like the rest of us, looking to find love, trying to quit a job that makes her wake up at 3:30AM, all of this while living with bipolar disorder and working towards healing from a heinous event from her past: Wendi was raped by 2 men seven years ago.
Wendi includes the good, the bad and the ugly in her material, making us laugh in a very natural way and most of all she makes us talk about delicate subjects that we usually stay away from. Discussing surviving rape and living with bipolar disorder in a stand-up format is not an easy thing to do and Wendi does a truly amazing job at it, connecting with many people that have gone through similar experiences and opening up a dialogue about it.   

A brave, sincere and funny woman has a powerful story to tell and we want to document it.
