Synopsis

In a bright, shiny, Skittles-coloured suburbia, Jill and Lisa spend their days exchanging fashion tips, complimenting their neighbours’ potluck dips, desperately vying for validation, while struggling to maintain pleasantry and normalcy. Things get really weird when Jill gifts Lisa her new-born baby in an altruistic gesture.
