Thirteen-year-old Ismini often goes to her friend Komal’s place for sleepovers. The duo has pretty much shared everything in life since the age of three. Lately though a lot has changed for them both and the girlfriends are aware that they are going through a transitional phase. It won’t be long before they both enter full womanhood – but what’s that going to be like exactly? What will happen to their bodies when they start their periods? And how will that be changing their relationship with guys? Even now they often feel at ease with them, but other times not. In a night of a thousand questions, the girls explore the great mysteries of growing up and find out what these mean for their friendship.
