Desiree and Shenice go out for a night of dancing but when Shenice takes things a step too far, Desiree is confronted with who Shenice really is and how Desiree may be the one responsible for her friend's insidious transformation.

Based on the critically acclaimed solo show, BODY SO FLUORESCENT is a short film that cracks open conversations surrounding the appropriation of black femaleness, racism within the white, gay, community and the boundaries of friendship.
