DescriptionFIRST BASE is a light-hearted drama focusing on the moment at which girls are still allowed to love other girls. Attempting to counter Hollywood movies which endlessly reinforce the idea that women should fear and compete with each other, this film shows two girls who are best friends placing boys second to their own relationship. Implicit in this entertaining portrayal of best 'girlfriends' is the potential for adolescent same sex love to carry on into adulthood.
