A reporter’s own personal life is a mess but she has no choice but to ghostwrite a sex column when the famous, but anonymous, sex columnist for her magazine starts to miss deadlines.
Heartbroken, Mi Roo goes out drinking and accidentally oversleeps and misses an important interview the next day. After her boss chews her out at the office, he tasks her with picking up the manuscripts from their sex columnist, who is incognito. After meeting in public places to retrieve the column from “Sophia,” the disguised columnist goes missing and misses deadlines.
With her boss breathing down her neck and her job on the line, Mi Roo is forced to sit down and start writing the column herself. Although her entire dating experience was the one-year relationship with her now-ex boyfriend, the very superstitious Mi Roo makes up columns about dating 12 men who represent the 12 signs of the zodiac. How long will she be able to keep up the charade before her ruse is discovered?
