They're sharp. They bite. And they're not in her mouth...

Angelic Dawn (Jess Weixler) is the leading light of her local church, and a fervent champion of the True Love Waits movement. She even defends the censorship of the female genitalia in her school textbooks (genuine practice in some Bible Belt schools) on the grounds of women's 'natural modesty'. But when she's finally driven to stifle that modesty and explore the most mysterious part of her body, Dawn discovers that her good friend God has landed her with an alarming physical idiosyncrasy. One that proves to be very, very bad news for over-eager boyfriends, unprofessional gynaecologists and prowling perverts... An absolutely uproarious horror/comedy, which scooped the lovely Weixler a Special Jury Prize at Sundance ('for a juicy and jaw-dropping performance').
