Uh-Oh! is a love story that revolves around the classic text, The Story of O. Not an adaptation, but rather a critical analysis of masochism that investigates the relationship between love, risk-taking, spirituality, power, and sex. An all-female cast plays cowboys who stage sado-masochistic rituals in the basement of a diner. A waitress named Oh (Emanuela Villorini) falls in love with a cowboy (New York poet Eileen Myles). Through complex interweaving of metaphor and suggestion, their ensuing love story is told against the backdrop of sexual and spiritual submission, which (like the novel) suggests that submission is the ultimate expression of romantic love—a love that precludes a dangerous loss of ego, but like spiritual ecstasy promises deep psycho-sexual fulfillment.
