  • Synopsis

    Cat and Sophie are teenagers on the brink, growing up in the face of everything a city can throw at them – in a world where your mum’s biggest worry is whether the milk’s back in the fridge, your lover refuses to say your name and the girl in the next cubicle has a low voice and surprisingly hairy hands. You can’t learn to be good when your elders are no longer your betters. Somehow, the girls must cope – or find a way of escaping.
