Billie and Emma
Samantha Lee, 2018, Philippines, 104 min
Billie and Emma are sent to a Catholic high school for very different reasons. Set in the Philippines of the mid-1990’s, Billie is banished by her city parents to get her away from her girlfriend. Emma is brilliant, overachieving, popular, and on course for a bright future. They fall in love, but things get complicated when Billie finds out that Emma is pregnant. Together they explore friendships, the passion of music, sexual awakening and the promise of a whole lifetime of loves, lost and found.
