A queer teenage boy locks himself in the bathroom and dives into a dream. Struggling to come to terms with his identity, he escapes into a fantasy world: an isolated farmhouse in the decaying Midwest. There he becomes Stina, a young woman desperate to express herself through dangerous designs on her step-dad – and anyone else who gets in her way. Will Stina’s plans result in a bloody bathtub burlesque for the ages or will repression and shame drown them all?

This film has content which some viewers may find distressing, including strong language, violence, murder, strong sexual content and adult themes throughout.
