First part of the satirical documentary series in four parts Fatal Reaction, about the problems of college educated singles in New York. Recently, American scientists claimed that single careerwomen in their thirties have less than 20 percent of a chance of ever finding a steady partner. This resulted in a sudden boom in selfhelp books and crash courses such as How to Become a Sex Goddess in 101 Easy Steps. Using this relation circus as a background, the documentary portrays a successfull casting director who regrets still being single.
