A delightful queer coming-of-age series based on the best-selling memoir of musicians Tegan and Sara about growing up in small-town Canada.
A story about discovering your own identity—a journey made more difficult when you have a twin whose struggle and self-discovery mirror your own. The series weaves between parallel and discordant memories of sisters growing up down the hall from one another, set against a backdrop of ’90s grunge and rave culture.
Directed by Clea DuVall
Starring Railey Gilliland, Seazynn Gilliland, Cobie Smulders
