“PARADISE HILLS FULLY EMBRACES FEMININITY, WHILE PRODDING AT THE VERY REPRESSIVE SOCIETAL NORMS THAT WOULD SUBDUE US.” – Kimberly Elizabeth, Nightmare on Film Street
In rural Illinois, a young girl’s disappearance traumatizes the small town residents, as secrets are revealed, destroying some relationships and strengthening others. Three girls, Charlotte, Laurel and Joanna, form a bond in the aftermath of the tragedy. Sophomore year in the community turns strange when a succession of traumas accelerates each character’s coming-of-age and mysteries emerge from every complication.
