Based on the Lindy West's novel of the same name, Shrill deals with Annie, a young adult woman who stops paying attention to her weight and starts focusing on being a powerful confident woman, that includes breaking up with a crappy boyfriend-ish, standing up for herself at work and being all-around a badass.
