JENNI (21) is a vibrant butterfly, however she has a shadow that prevents her from living her life to the fullest. The only thing stopping her is ”no-life loser” flatmate TONY (47). They are both unhappy, living like an old couple that doesn’t have the good sense to get divorced. What makes their situation intolerable is that Jenni and Tony are actually the same person. 

The struggle started when Jenni came out of the closet as a transgender person seven years ago. Alternating between genders is getting more exhausting every day. Jenni has to kill Tony. Suddenly Jenni finds another woman living in her rabbit hole. Heta, a friend from work, enters her life bringing rather dominant vibes to Jenni’s new emancipated self which leads to an erratic new direction in her life.

Will Jenni succeed in killing Tony, or will she die trying?
