A thought-provoking, boundary-pushing documentary that explores female sexuality and shame through the eyes and experiences of three women, each brave enough to chart her own course of sexual discovery.
While we live in a highly sexualized society, the messaging around sexuality is distorted and rife with shame. What we should look like, who we should want, what we should desire…is dictated to us from screens and pages and people.
Candice, Elle, and Samantha have little in common.
But they are all sexual. And be it through circumstance or happenstance, they have each faced their sexual selves head on, and chosen to step outside the bounds of what society has dictated and find their own way forward.
