Serena’s newfound popularity also means discovering the pain of being a fifteen-year-old girl in a world that both sexualizes and shames young women. After narrowly avoiding exploitation in a short-lived relationship, Serena aligns with a new friend who was the victim of an explicit image that was shared at school.

When Serena finds herself in a relationship with a new guy, she is surprised to find a different set of expectations.

As Serena struggles to find who she is as opposed to who she is expected to be, she begins sighting Devin, her older brother who disappeared months earlier.
