Side Effects is a fun romantic comedy about the pharmaceutical industry and a young woman who fumbles with love and ethics as she navigates a career with one of corporate America's darlings.

Karly Hert is a pharmaceutical "detailer" who becomes disillusioned with the lack of ethics in the pharmaceutical industry and has tough choices to make.

Karly has spent the last ten years selling drugs...legally, that is.

Although conflicted on a daily basis by the values within the pharmaceutical industry, and industry driven by profits at the expense of patients; Karly has been seduced by the golden handcuffs of corporate America.

Enter Zach Danner, who convinces Karly to be true to her values and walk away from her lucrative but empty job.

As their relationship blossoms, Karly devises a plan to get out. But leaving is never quite as easy as it seems
