About The Film
A sisterhood of high school outcasts seeks to remake themselves while prepping for prom night in this provocatively funny and poignant coming-of-age dramedy, nominated for 12 Israeli Academy Awards. Hiding that she’s transgender, mysterious new student Eden enters a cliquish Jerusalem school, where she befriends two other girls who harbor their own unrealized dreams. Envious of their picture-perfect classmates, the teens band together on an impulsive adventure to Ukraine, going to queasy extremes to bankroll cosmetic surgery. This beguiling, cautionary tale of identity, self-discovery and prejudice features a standout performance by Stav Strashko, the first transgender woman nominated for Israel’s top acting prize.
