Phones, light typing...and murder. 

Think breaking into show business is hard? Try landing a temp job without office skills. That's the challenge facing aspiring actress Isobel Spice when she arrives in New York City, fresh out of college and deficient in PowerPoint. After being rejected by seven temp agencies for her lack of experience, Isobel sweet-talks recruiter James Cooke into letting her cover a last-minute vacancy at a bank. New to his own job, and recently sober, James takes a chance on Isobel, despite his suspicion that she's a trouble-magnet. His misgivings are borne out by lunchtime, when she stumbles across a dead secretary in a bathroom stall. Can Isobel find the killer before he strikes again?

I'm already starting to think this girl is constantly horny. Who discusses sex on their first meeting at work?
I have a bad feeling about her... Is she the murderer? Or the murdered?
Umm ... I don't think he meant those offices ... as if getting detention can land you a Job! 😅

😂 In Argentina her name would be an embarrassment. It would mean in a way cute and little female's private part. 😂
