“Thighs are flabby. You’re close to a gap. That space is very important. That will solve everything wouldn’t perfection, yes.”
Two women. One apartment. They’re surrounded by flashy lipstick ads, wellness trends and dating apps. The women self-examine and compare, examine and compare. They’re aiming for something. They’re aiming for a thigh gap and they don’t know why.
Thigh Gap is an absurd, dark comedy that explores the commodification of women’s bodies in a capitalist patriarchy.
