Her mother takes 15-year-old Elyse Marks to her first gynecologist appointment with the "new Doc-on-the-Block", Dr. Steve Sheldon. Dr. Sheldon continues to be Elyse's go to doctor throughout her life. Over the course of 50 years, two acts, and many appointments, Elyse discloses intimate details of her life to Dr. Sheldon and to "wanna be comedian" Nurse Carol. Bits and pieces of all their lives begin to unravel. Pregnancy, divorce, menopause, and eventually a disease that deteriorates the doctor whom Elyse had grown to adore and trust, take place around the office where the use of stirrups is just an exam room away.
