A teenage girl is outed as lesbian in gossip that spreads quickly across her school. She finds herself judged and insulted by her peers, and coerced into trying to change herself by someone she took to be her friend. Based on true events, Pink Pill is a hard-hitting examination of bullying and its emotional consequences.
