Vix & Helen are growing up in an age of misinformation. There’s a neurological mismatch driven by tech rapidly advancing whilst female reproductive rights regress and women’s issues remain stigmatised.
They tell the story of a bizarre incident in their younger siblings’ reception, where the whole little army of 5 year olds became obsessed over a seemingly ordinary drawing by Vix’s little brother. Through seemingly inane arguing, we reveal the shame Vix is holding onto around her mother’s miscarriage, Helen’s body dysmorphia & increasingly worrying relationship with food.
We follow Vix & Helen, stuck in limbo, between growing up, or not, being friends, or not, and being on the verge of disaster, or not.
