Exiled to boarding schools for his entire life, Deon returns to his birthplace with a vengeance--luring the women of the town to the woods for a night of uninhibited partying. Meanwhile, a young reactionary with a big social media following condemns the debauchery and vows to restore order. Pulsing with a beat that is as dangerous as it is seductive, GIRLS is an electrifying contemporary spin on Euripides's The Bacchae with a killer DJ, bumping dance music, and live-streaming video.
