Freaking out over prom dresses and dates – so far, so tame. But when one girl introduces others to a predatory black marketeer who exchanges plastic surgery procedures for body organs, the peer pressure to look perfect proves too great. Making sleepover excuses and flying to Ukraine for augmentations, new pupil Eden – living stealth in the group – gingerly embraces this risky opportunity. Although on hormones, her impatience for the surgery referrals that her father is slow to agree to, finds her caught up in the dangerous scheme. Played by model-turned-actor Stav Strashko, her performance won her the accolade of first trans nominee for an Ophir Award, an Israeli Oscar. Sidestepping various cliches, this prickly teen drama keeps you on your toes.
