In the 1990s Becky Something (Elisabeth Moss) was a punk rock superstar who filled arenas as part of the all-female trio Something She. However their success was short lived, with the band quickly finding themselves relegated to smaller venues with nervous record company executives hovering over them.

After Becky’s self-destructive excesses derail a recording session and a national tour, she is shunned and forced to retreat from the spotlight. Can she reckon with her past and her demons, and ultimately recapture the creative inspiration that once brought her fame and happiness?

Unfolding over the course of five distinct vignettes, Her Smell is driven along by a gripping lead performance from the ever-versatile Elisabeth Moss.
