In this uber hip, pop culture film laced with electrifying emojis, the stunningly gorgeous Anna Celestino Mota stars as Alice Junior – a high octane social influencer and Teen Top Model trans girl – who panics when she finds she must move to the Brazilian hinterlands to attend a Catholic school with “no friends, no career, no kissing, no boyfriend, no phone signal, and ugh – forced to wear a boy’s uniform”! But she wins over all the small-minded bullies as they learn to appreciate this charismatic leader who’s more into friendship and feminist bathrooms than Barbie Dance Parties.
