Emma is a girl who likes to be in control. When she tries out for the local voltige (equestrian vaulting) team she meets Cassandra, a strong, attractive and vivacious girl. As they get to know each other, they share a sense of wicked fun and quickly become best friends. But feelings of jealousy, competitiveness and sexual attraction have them pushing each other to their limits. As Emma spends more time away from home with Cassandra, little sister Sara begins to discover her own sexual identity, all the while pining for affection from a reluctant babysitter.

A taboo-busting modern Western, Lisa Aschan’s She Monkeys presents to us a trio of young women for whom gender is both weapon and toy, pushing the boundaries of political correctness to breaking point.

"One of the most intense and complex feature debuts to come from Sweden since Lukas Moodyson's Show Me Love" - Variety
