Rushing to get to her pointless job every morning sucks, and Billie’s (Lisa Cordileone, Easy Abby) not putting up with it anymore. After telling everyone to f*ck off, she, unfortunately, has to break the news to her fiancée (Natasha Negovanlis). When she meets a ragtag group of women who are also looking for employment, Billie is struck with the idea of cultivating their skills to create an app, by designing a prototype for an investor launch party. Billie takes the risk of her life, lying to her fiancée in order to buy time until her plan for Freelancers Anonymous can come to fruition. When the wedding and the launch party are booked for the same day, it all comes to a head.

This screwball romp blends romantic comedy and workplace politics from director Sonia Sebastián (Girl Gets Girl). Freelancers Anonymous features winning performances from Amy Shiels (Twin Peaks: The Return), Megan Cavanagh (A League of Their Own), and trans actress Alexandra Billings (Transparent) as Billie’s hysterical robot-ball-obsessed boss.
