Toni, an 11-year old tomboy, stumbles upon an all-girl dance crew during one of her trips to the local gym with her older brother. Mesmerised by the dancers, she joins the troupe and attempts to fit in, only to find her efforts curtailed by a strange condition that makes the girls fall victim to violent seizures. As much a coming of age story as a dreamy cinematic exercise, Anna Rose Holmer’s debut film takes the idea of mass psychogenic phenomena to the very relatable experience of finding a place in the adult world as the innocence of childhood leaves you for ever.
