This is the story of two young girls who dig up a tiny woman from the back garden. They incubate her in their mouths, in their bed, they lock her in a dolls house wallpapered with pornography to make her grow up faster, feeding her through a tube in the door. When she is life-sized and ready to play they take her to the disco. A dark, comic, experimental fantasy on the implications of Little Girls Toys — with the existential melancholy of Frankenstein's monster.

"A compelling exploration of a child's inner life and logic. Impressive and distinctive."

— Peter Christian Hall, New York Independent Film & Video Monitor

"As sly and loving an evocation of formative fantasies and rituals as Todd Haynes’s Dottie Gets Spanked."

— Village Voice
