You’ve done everything right. So what happens now?
Seven basic emotions are recognized throughout the world: happiness, sadness, surprise, fear, anger, disgust, and contempt. Some can give us the life we always wanted. Others can destroy us.
Fresh out of her degree, Chloe Jackson is utterly lost. Her career is a non-starter, her family aren’t much help, and her boyfriend may not be her boyfriend after all. With a head full of questions and no job in sight, she can’t help but wonder where she wandered off track. Why did she give up her art, why is everything she knew falling to pieces, and who can she rely on?
Desperate, she visits the doctor, and is given two things: a handful of pills and an appointment with a therapist. Skeptical but out of options, she takes a deep breath and knocks at the door.
In each session, Chloe must face, understand and own one of her basic feelings. And as the feelings transform to monstrous representations of herself and the meetings take on the guise of battles, she must move and adapt anew each time, trying not to lose herself entirely. Can she make it out into the light?
With nods to the game play of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and the altered reality of Requiem for a Dream, One Girl Army is a story of grit. It’s about one girl looking her enemies in the eye and whispering, "Come at me."
