The Story:

From an early age, songs and fairytales convince Zelma that Love would solve all her problems as long as she abides by societal expectations of how a girl should act. But as she grows older something doesn't seem right with this concept of love: the more she tries to conform, the more her body resists. A story of inner-female rebellion.
