About this submission
Blinded by outward appearances and the hope of friendship, a nervous teen participates in an alarming ritual. “Girls Will Be” is a dark satire about glamorous facades and societal pressures to conform. To gain acceptance, Roxanne enters an opulent home full of immaculately dressed teenage girls — the fashion shoot tableau is exhilarating, and Roxanne seems to fit in well. But as the day goes on, she senses something is off, and soon she’s forced to consider disturbing possibilities.
