In the film, Schumer plays an ordinary woman who struggles with feelings of insecurity and inadequacy on a daily basis and wakes from a fall believing she is suddenly the most beautiful and capable woman on the planet.
“I’ve always wondered what it would feel to be undeniably pretty,” Schumer ponders in the trailer. Cut to a fall in her Soul Cycle class. When Schumer awakes, she looks at herself in the mirror and exclaims, “Wait, that’s me. I’m beautiful!” She then suddenly starts radiating confidence, as if she’s a changed person, in all areas of her life.
