Feature narrative


United States – 2023


Jonny Baptiste is a reckless teenage girl sent to live with her estranged Aunt Hildie. On the event of her 18th birthday, Jonny is given a cake baked according to a magical family recipe which triggers a radical metamorphosis. Meanwhile, the constant killing spree-emergency drills at her new school create a tense atmosphere and soon five girls go missing. Fascinated by their disappearance, Jonny sets out to look for clues and a blood-soaked coming-of-age story takes its course.

The film is a dark, queer-feminist genre mix of body horror, gore and mystery. Director Reeder looks at the world predominantly through the eyes of her young protagonists who, armed with biting humour and an unbroken sense of justice, manage to wrest moments of light-heartedness and solidarity from the twisted world of adults.

Director Jennifer Reeder will be present for the screening on September 24.
