She Monkeys

She Monkeys

When 15-year-old Emma joins a local riding club, she meets Cassandra. They initiate a relationship filled with physical and psychological challenges and Emma does whatever it takes to master the rules of the game. Lines are crossed and the stakes get higher and higher. Despite this, Emma cannot resist the intoxicating feeling of total control. Meanwhile, Emma‘s curious and innocent seven-year-old sister Sara is prematurely spurred to confront the treacherous frontiers of sexuality and womanhood on her own.
