Preceeded by BFF

Shy, just-out-of-high-school Anna is depressed by her recent break up with her first girlfriend, and her plastic surgeon receptionist job only offers the option of a discount boob job to elevate her dampened spirits. Then one night Anna catches sexy siren Sadie defacing her clinic with a pro-body message. It transpires that Sadie is an activist for the underground women’s rights faction C(i)A or Clits in Action. Intrigued and hoping to become part of Sadie’s agenda (despite Sadie’s committed relationship with an old skool feminist), Anna joins the motley C(i)A crew, leaving behind the meek dormouse to become a bad-ass rebel-with-a-cause. Pulsating with a radical brand of gender politics accompanied by grungy, punk lesbian-rock, this loud, feisty activist comedy is an endearing introduction to dissident feminist groups and the ‘ballsy’ female anarchists who run them.
