Seventeen year-old twins Kristen and Owen are so wrapped up in their own world that they’re misfits in the real one. Viciously witty, they spend their days caring for their mum Maureen and taking the piss out of their rough estate. They love Maureen but dream of murder and escape. Then along comes Liam: tough, charming, full velocity, genuinely cool. Kristen fancies him with the intensity of someone in a fairytale. But Liam takes Owen out drinking. Pissed and “just for a laugh”, Liam suggests that Owen try on some designer women’s clothes he happens to have. Previously invisible behind his dominant sister, Owen transforms into a beautiful, sexy woman and finds the world — and Liam — attracted to him.
