Additional Info

In this sci-fi sex comedy from razor-sharp satirists The Five Lesbian Brothers, a group of female astronauts in the year find themselves adrift in space when a discarded Winnebago crashes into the ship's hull. When their programmed sexual urges are accidentally triggered, the ship becomes a Sapphic love boat. To make matters worse, the only person who can save them is a dotty housewife back on Earth with an unexpected past. A bawdy, distopic comedy that surprises with poignant portraits of lost souls reaching for connection.
