14 year old Matilda is upset that her boyfriend, William, goes on about having anal sex when she really does not want to. She takes her father to meet William's parents to talk them to make William stop asking her for anal sex again.

Director's Statement

I think a lot about how the internet, and the amount of porn that is there, affects young people. Regarding topics that are not so sensitive, it is easy for the younger generation to ask the older, but when it comes to sex, there seems to have been a big gap in this regard. Good or bad?
