Four very different women answer a flyer for 'The Pink Hammer Workshop' – a ladies-only woodwork class. They turn up expecting empowerment and sisterhood from the advertised tutor, Maggie Taylor….but when they arrive, Maggie’s gone AWOL. Maggie’s husband Woody certainly doesn’t want a bunch of crazy women playing with his tools, but he doesn’t have a choice!
