In the early 90’s, following her father’s death, a queer teenager Jaime, is sent to live with her fundementalist Jehovah Witnesses relatives. Soon Jaime forms an unexpected connection with Marike. Both youth find themselves instantly attracted to each other and begin a secret affair. But when their attraction is becoming too obvious to hide, their community does everything in its power to break the young couple and force each girl to make life changing decisions.
In their debut film, directors Mark Slutsky and Sarah Watts deliver a drama with a fresh look on first love and forbidden love. Anwen O’Driscoll and June Laporte portray the two young heroines with unapologetic exuberance.
