Synopsis / Plot
In the generic Canadian suburb of Bailey Downs live Ginger and Brigitte, 15-year-old sisters committed to introversion, menstruation anxiety, and terminal misanthropy. Three years late for their first period, they spend their time staging gruesome death scenes for their own amusement, amidst the willful ignorance of their relentlessly perky mother. On the night Ginger finally gets her period, the sisters are attacked in the woods by a ferocious creature, a predator currently disemboweling its way through the local dog population. The girls survive the attack, and Ginger's wounds heal quickly, but her attitude grows even more bizarre, as hair sprouts from her scars and a tail grows from her spine. Adding to the terror, she starts dating boys. A panicked Brigitte forces herself to befriend Sam, the high school pot supplier, whose brand of ganja may be the only cure for Ginger's troubling ailment.
