Three 17-year-old girls navigate the daily indignities of high school using razor-sharp wit to shield their vulnerabilities. Envious of their picture-perfect popular classmates, the trio make a secret pact to raise the funds for cosmetic surgery and prom dresses.
They embark on an impulsive adventure that ultimately becomes a journey of self-discovery, shaping these self-conscious high schoolers into adults. Directors Sharon Maymon and Tal Granit (The Farewell Party, WJFF 2015) bring their blend of provocative humor and humanity to this contemporary cautionary tale. Transgender model Strashko delivers a star-making performance as Eden, the girl with most to hide—but also the most to gain—in her search for validation.
