Teenage friends Kim, Bella and Momo face misogynist, homophobic bullying every day from the boys at school. The teachers either turn a blind eye to it or tell them to toughen up. It seems life would be easier if they were boys. Then one night, a strange plant blossoms in Momo’s greenhouse, its nectar temporarily transforming the trio into male-bodied versions of themselves.
For Bella and Momo, it’s an exciting experiment. But for Kim, the change is a dream come true. Attracted to Tony, the local bad boy, Kim suspects there might be something tender beneath his tough guy act. However, masculinity has its own rules and there is a high price to pay for those who break them. Meanwhile, Momo and Bella are feeling left out. This moody and on occasion very dark genderqueer fantasy, directed by Alexandra-Therese Keining (Kiss Me), is brimming with thwarted desire and teenage angst.
