The film uses an issue as its premise that, despite being a very relevant concern, is only talked about in hushed whispers behind closed doors, and often only in a hyper-sexualised manner. Consequently, it does not achieve the attention it deserves. The story is of a housewife whose unsatisfying sex-life leads her to use a carrot as a dildo.

Alone at home all day, her mind first attempts to take shelter in all kinds of fantasy. She finds herself comparing her life with other married couples, and coy attempts to address the same concern with her husband leads to little to no solution. What the plot endeavours is an engagement with sexuality, but falls short of achieving the delicate and careful approach that would have allowed a smoother treatment of the subject matter.
