BUBBLE is the story of 16-year-old small town girl Evelina, whose world collapses when she finds out her mother is having an affair with a woman. Like all teens, Eveliina thinks liberally, and wants her own freedom of thought and action - but that thinking does not really extend to her own parents. She tries to stop her mother’s affair at all cost and get her parents to fall in love again, with both dramatic and comedic consequences.
