After years of emotional abuse and body shaming, two ballerina's drug-fueled fantasy, of viciously attacking their ballet school, becomes reality. Meanwhile, a nerdy ballerina starts writing a novel based on the events that transpired, deeply offending some for turning such sensitive material into a book, for young audiences. Soon, her and her sister realize that every word being typed is somehow altering real life at large. Will this strange and psychedelic paralleling fantasy carry the sisters, along with anyone else, to a merciless blood-splattered doom?
The film stars Sydney Raye and Jessica Knopf, as partners in crime. Laura Amelia as the dance teacher, Delphine, and Julia Faye West as company co-owner.
