Adapted from Lieberman's award-winning solo show Year of the Slut, Year of the WHAT? is a romantic comedy that follows heartbroken and lonely 25-year-old Dana, who is six months off her first break-up and living the single life in New York City. A virgin once removed, she’s insecure and on the hunt for the one. Dana has only been with one man and hasn’t given herself a chance to explore her own curiosity. She feels ashamed of her desires, and keeps trying to squash them in order to be a ‘good girl’.
Her roommate, Kelly, on the other hand, is unabashedly promiscuous, with an off the charts IQ and a full ride to NYU. But Kelly can’t stand the monotony of school, so she drops out to become a dominatrix and pursue an alternative lifestyle where she makes ‘lawyer money’ working in a dungeon in Chelsea.
After months of searching in vain for Mr. Right, Kelly’s lust for life and insatiable quest for adventure finally rub off...Dana embarks on an outrageous adventure of sexual discovery where she finds her inner power and confidence, all while taking charge of her erotic exploration. Through her exploits Dana realizes she will never find what she is looking for, until she finds herself.

Jennifer Lieberman – an actor, writer and filmmaker who earned an undergraduate degree in philosophy and English literature – got a writing-related degree instead of a film degree because she intended to use her writing skills when making movies. Regardless of an aspiring filmmaker's academic background, he or she will need an abundance of initiative, says Lieberman, the founder of "Make Your Own Break," an organization that helps independent creative professionals design their own career opportunities.
"For my experience, the people who have had the longevity and who have had the most success are the people who have taken the reins, created their own productions, created their own production companies and who are not waiting for anybody to give them a job," she says. "They give themselves work. They create their own work."
