Documentary feature: 80 min. / Series: 3 x 28 min


Josephine has colorful wigs, a large heavy nose ring and collects bones from road-kills.
She is 20 years old and has never been part of the handball clique 
in the small town in Denmark where she grew up.
Instead, in goth culture, she has found her two friends - the maximalist with the self-proclaimed name Mareridt
and the reflective Christian, Jay. Armed with hefty makeup and wild outfits, the gothic trinity fights to control
their inner demons and together they create a free space where they can unfold undisturbed.
But one day Josephine falls in love and as her black beating heart begins to beat
for something other than darkness, 
their precious friendship is threatened.
