After freshman Joni joins sorority Theta Beta, she learns that sisterhood means more than the colors you wear. Accompanied by her troubled best friend Kate, Joni spirals down a rabbit hole of bulimia dream ballets, Bachelor restoration comedies, and Dirty Disney ragers. Confronted with a world that confounds her expectations, Joni forces all the members of Theta Beta to ask: what do women owe other women? And in our post-#metoo era, what’s next? Mixing comedy and catharsis, superficial and sacred, PERIOD SISTERS tells a tale of synced-up cycles, consent, and culpability, creating a searing portrait of life as a young, 21st century woman.
