Freshly out of the closet, misunderstood by her adopted parents, and heading to college in the fall, teenage animator Twinkie teeters on the cusp of adulthood waiting out the summer with her best friend Egghead and secretly DMing her Insta-famous DJ crush BD. But when BD proposes meeting in person for the first time at their show some 500 miles away from Twinkie’s Florida home, there’s only one thing for her to do...enlist Egghead to steal her parents’ car and hit the open road. Bursting at the seams with exuberant flourishes of rotoscoped anime and clever visual montage, director Sarah Kambe Holland’s debut feature is a breath of fresh air into the queer coming-of-age film — enlivening themes of racial and sexual identity, young love, and ride-or-die friendship with flair to spare in its distinctly Gen Z sensibility.
