Kelly Pannill-Perkins as Darla
Dennis, a nebbish aspiring novelist, is prepping for his first online date. He is expecting buttoned-up accountant, Darla, to arrive at his apartment for dinner any minute, but when the doorbell rings, the evening takes an unexpected turn. Standing before him is not Darla, but Rhonda, an eccentric psychic who is anything but buttoned up. Dennis invites both women to stay, and the night suddenly becomes way more interesting than any of them planned.
