Emma is a girl who likes to control. When she tries out for the local voltige (horseback acrobatics) 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 rapid-fire confusion sets in. Feelings of jealousy, competiveness and sexual attraction have them pushing each other to their limits. As Emma spends more and more time away from home with Cassandra, her little sister Sara begins to discover her own sexual identity, all the while pining for affection from a reluctant babysitter.
Lisa Aschan's taboo-busting She Monkeys lifts the lid on a group of girls for whom gender is both weapon and toy, pushing the boundaries of political correctness to breaking point.
