Dina

Invited

Meet Dina, an eccentric 49-year-old woman living in suburban Philadelphia, who’s engaged to Scott, a Walmart door greeter. She has spent countless hours watching Sex and the City and Keeping Up with the Kardashians, is interested in sex, and wants to be closer to the man she is set to marry, but she discovers that they don’t share the same expectations around intimacy. By turns touching, hilarious, tender, and uncomfortable, Dina is the story of a woman in love who is not afraid to ask for the life she wants. Bolstered by the support of her married best friends, and with the input of her mother, she approaches her impending nuptials. She has faced her fair share of past hardship, but she’s resilient and irrepressible. Whether plunging into the surf during a day trip to Ocean City, entertaining a stripper as part of her wild bachelorette party, or drawing a bath in a champagne flute–shaped whirlpool in the Poconos, Dina throws herself into the experiences the world has to offer, wholly committed to being in love while being true to herself.  ST
