A teenage girl lives her first feelings of love and desire. But while she discovers orgasm in the arms of a ladyfriend, she suffers an incredible metamorphosis. It follows rejection, disconnection of reality, isolation, disgust of herself and of sex. However, she will realize that this strange skill could be more a gift than a blemish… A pop and fantastic tale about emergence of sexuality and self-acceptance.
Raised in a family of musicians and moviegoers, Marion Renard developed early a taste for “Z” movies and genre cinema in general. In France, she studied a literary cursus, Cinema option, then pursued this specialization in university, before integrating INSAS. Her projects, fictions or documentaries, from INSAS as well as external, vary in tones but are always colorful, still retain a carnal dimension and a sort of poetry into obscenity, a touch of black humor, as well as a game on the codes of cinematographic genres.
