Billie (Lisa Cordileone) can’t take it anymore—she is miserable working at a failing marketing company run by a useless boss (Transparent’s Alexandra Billings). Her only redemption in life is her relationship and upcoming marriage to struggling actor Gayle (Toronto’s Natasha Negovanlis).
In a moment of drug-induced clarity, Billie quits her job. While searching for a new one she stumbles across a misfit group of unemployed women in a church basement who call themselves “Freelancers Anonymous.” Like Billie, this band of socially awkward ladies want to work but are hopeless at finding jobs—until Billie persuades them to launch an app to reach potential clients. If she could only convince the wedding-obsessed Gayle to support her risky career move, Billie would be all set.
A charmingly goofy comedy brought to life by a stellar set of female comedians, Freelancers Anonymous shines a much-needed spotlight on women in tech.
