In a Catholic reformatory in 1914, three teenage girls pass the time when a belligerent new girl shows up, bearing illegal contraband: birth control materials distributed by the women’s-rights activist Margaret Sanger. They begin to follow Sanger’s life in the newspaper, pretending that they are traveling on their own, assassinating enemies and taking lovers at will. Through their letters to each other, they reveal their pasts, marked by abuse. The girls slide deeper and deeper into their fantasy world, to the extent that objects from their fantasy world start appearing in the real one.
