Vi--a lesbian and artist--is heartbroken after her lover, Charlie, leaves her. She spends her days and sleepless nights in Charlie’s pajamas, alternately painting her “inner storm cloud” and abstract images of vaginas. These are strewn about her home amid other signs of her unraveling life.
When two bright and happy Evangelicals arrive at her door, Vi lets them into her home and begins questioning them on the nature of love and sin. While the two Christians, attempt to control the conversation, Vi takes it down a path they find increasingly uncomfortable. Gradually an unexpected bond begins to form between Vi and the female Evangelical. The situation builds to an emotional climax just as Charlie bursts through the door.
