Recent college graduate Amy Anderson is an aspiring writer who naively believes she is destined to be a great poet. Unemployed, she still lives with her parents while longing for independence. Although her parents are supportive of her artistic pursuits, when their finances deplete, they refuse to continue to provide free room and board -- plus fund the postage for her repeated literary submission rejections. With mounting student loans and few prospective employment opportunities, she begrudgingly takes a job at the local sex shop Adult World owned by a frisky elderly couple to earn a paycheck, working with the adorable local boy Alex and the flamboyant transvestite Rubio. Feeling that the future has something better in store for her, she sets out to pursue her dreams by stalking her reclusive literary idol, the crusty, alcoholic Rat Billings (who is coasting on his early glory days), to pursue a mentorship and become his protégé. Hoping Billings will help kick-start her road to success, she discovers that inspiration can be found in the most improbable places.
