By Lindsey Middleton

Delilah is an out-of-work actress turned dominatrix who loves her job. Doug is an out-of-work factory worker who is trying something new. Unbeknownst to Delilah, her dad is the Englishman in the blindfold handcuffed to the wall. Unbeknownst to Doug, his daughter is the Russian Domme with the whip. Their session is about to begin, whether they are ready for it or not. Session explores the first time we have adult conversations with our so called “perfect” parents as new and growing adults ourselves.
