An emotionally withdrawn writer picks up a struggling artist at a BDSM club for what he expects will be nothing more than a kinky one-night stand. But when they find each other more engaging than they anticipated, the two lonely nonconformists begin to cautiously explore the possibilities of an unconventional relationship.

Over a series of dates they share stories, have sex, and talk -- about relationships, monogamy, family, drugs, religion, art, life goals, and old wounds. But as they reveal more of themselves to each other, they struggle with what it means to be vulnerable with someone who can really hurt them. ROUGH EDGES is a frank portrayal of an unconventional relationship, but it's also a universal story about the fear of intimacy and the challenges of forming a meaningful connection with another person.
