The so-called BFF (best friend forever), often glorified as the most important personal relationship to women in their twenties, is hard to find and hard to keep in the era of individuality and alienation.

In many ways, this world can still be cruel to young women, especially the ones without a strong support system in place. The film depicts such feelings of invisibility when you feel like a stranger everywhere, and contrasts them with the strong human longing for connection and deep friendships, like the ones we usually see in films featuring young women,«”
