When shy high schooler Milla Finlay falls for small-time drug dealer Moses, it’s her parents’ worst nightmare. But Milla’s first brush with romance awakens in the terminally ill teen a passion for living like she has nothing to lose, and she finds freedom in the resulting chaos. Humorous and heartfelt, this irreverent coming-of-age drama features a whip-smart script and topnotch performances from Eliza Scanlen (Sharp Objects) as Milla.

“A wickedly perverse and […] intensely moving variation on familiar coming-of-age themes that marks an arresting feature debut for both director Shannon Murphy and screenwriter Rita Kalnejais.”
