Pure

Think you've had a few awkward moments? Well, think again, when you meet Marnie - a 24-year-old suffering from X-rated thoughts of those around her...

Have you ever imagined your boss naked? Or seducing your dad? Or an orgy at a funeral? Thinking something so wrong that you don’t know who you are anymore?

Twenty-four-year old Marnie has bad thoughts all the time and she can’t tell anyone. Her mind is XXX-rated and intrusive thoughts are piling up inside her head. It turns out she is caught in the grip of an excruciating form of obsessive compulsive disorder – nicknamed ‘pure O’ – where her obsessions take the form of intrusive thoughts, often sexual.   Only, Marnie doesn’t know this yet – she just knows: Something. Has. Got. To. Give.

On the day of her parents’ 25th wedding anniversary in the Scottish Borders, things reach a peak and result in THE most shocking intrusive thoughts ever! At breaking point, she packs a bag and, with no plan, jumps on a coach to London. But in the capital, Marnie soon discovers she’s not the only one who’s lost…

In increasingly funny and awkward encounters, Marnie’s finds a gang of new friends, all with their own foibles. She moves in with her deceptively cheery old school friend Shereen. She befriends Charlie, who is in recovery, having torpedoed his love and work life, due to his porn addiction. He’s now single, stuck with an old-school flip-phone and attends weekly Sex Addicts Anonymous meets. Queen among Marnie’s new gang is journalist and ladies-woman, Amber who has been gaining a problematic rep. for her promiscuity. Then there’s Amber’s housemate, the irresistible and unassuming Joe whom Marnie shares an adorable Will they-Won’t they romance.
