Snips and snails and puppy dog’s tails…
After drinking the curious nectar that drips from a mysterious plant, best friends Kim, Bella and Momo magically transform into boys. Geeky girls by day and popular boys by night they find themselves living in two completely different worlds.
The thrill of experiencing life as the opposite sex soon wears off for Bella and Momo, but being a boy becomes addictive for Kim as he experiments with his sexuality and the possibility of first love with bad boy Tony.
Friendship between the three girls is tested as a boy’s life is not all it’s made out to be.
“Imagine Stranger Things with Barb playing all the main characters or The Craft with gender identity issues, and you’ve got this intense, authentic Swedish fantasy.” – Tom Huddleston, Time Out
“Like Freaky Friday with a dash of heavyweight gender politics.” – Kate Muir, The Times
