Sticky. Candy. Dizzy. POP!

The ripest fruits come with the deadliest pits.

In this highschool where both good and bad have sour consequences, the three popular girls are confections of their surroundings. When their boredom bitters and sick kicks are not enough, the craving to kill emerges. Cherry Bomb sparks a countdown that turns these bitches lives totally twisted! Exploding with nostalgia, temptation and teenage rage, this dark comedy will rattle these poisonous one-dimensional tropes.
