About Snap Out of It
It just might take a performance artist dressed up in a bunny suit to cure the world of heartbreak.
Billie Slate didn't mean to go viral with the business she invented when she was drunk. But one night she and her best friend decided that romance was rubbish, and that people need to stop wallowing in their pain. Billie, already something of a misfit, willingly sacrifices her dignity to dress up in a bunny costume and hop into people's homes and helpfully remove the objects that hold the lovelorn in their misery: photographs, love letters, the well-worn sweater.
But when fame and fortune come calling, Billie finds her life becoming more complicated as she jets across the country spreading her Snap Out of It message and attracting followers. When her perfectionist daughter's marriage implodes, and her own ex-husband comes asking for another chance, Billie has to decide what kind of love just might be worth holding onto.
