Synopsis Cheryl Johnson is an up and coming Real Estate Agent. She has aspirations to be the best. She’s pretty, poised and fashionable. It seems she has it all. Unfortunately, Cheryl has problem. She’s better at looking the part than realizing it. Cheryl is consumed by consumption. She has a little shopping problem that is bigger than she would like to admit. Cheryl’s in denial and it’s beginning to take a toll on her life. At work, as she is questioned about her drop in sales by her boss Marilyn, Cheryl puts up a great front. Luckily, to her advantage, a call comes in from a couple that is interested in buying the house that she has been assigned to sell. Cheryl convinces Marilyn that everything is fine and things are picking up. Marilyn is pleased. Later that day, Marilyn brings other potential buyers to the same house. As Marilyn is showing the property, they are startled by sounds in the house. Cheryl is in the shower. Marilyn comforts the couple and goes to check it out. Cheryl hears them and rushes to get dressed. Treading lightly, Marilyn walks through the house and to her surprise, opens the bathroom door to discover Cheryl half dressed. Embarrassed, Cheryl frantically gathers her things and leaves Marilyn begging for an explanation. As Cheryl drives around to different destinations in the city, the realization of her situation begins to hit home and she is forced to face her grim situation. Cheryl est allée au bout du fantasme de la jeune femme américaine “faire du shopping jusqu’à épuisement.” Agent immobilier et ambitieuse, elle se trouve maintenant dans la situation désespérée de devoir vendre une maison à tout prix pour parvenir à rester à flots. Son entourage et ses collègues ignorent tout de sa situation, proche de la catastrophe. Elle se trouve obligée de vivre dans la maison qu’elle est chargée de vendre.
