When circumstances bring together two imaginative teenage schoolgirls, they quickly form an unwavering bond, creating a fantasy world that only they can share. But when their parents become disturbed by the intensity of the friendship and threaten to keep them apart, the girls vow to stay together and devise a secret plan that leads to shocking consequences.
