Taboo Candy

A wildly inappropriate love story about two High School Girls caught up in a forbidden adult world of love and lust.

JEZEL and MARA are high school sophomores whose parents are barely present. Mara is an emancipated minor whose Father; PASCAL is a local Rock Star. Her best friend, JEZEL spends most of her time trying to survive her alcoholic Father, TONY, and her emotionally distant Mother, LENA.

Mara’s college drop-out boyfriend, MATT introduces her to the porn industry -- where she attains some notoriety and success in spreads and on covers of Skin Mags. Jezel becomes involved and entangled with RAF, an older, married man and the front man for the Rock Band, HOTEL BARDO.
Taboo Candy has hot muscle cars, car races, motorcycles, forbidden sex, drugs and Rock-n-Roll. But this is not a surface tale, there are authentic emotions and genuine love embodied within the child hearts of these young girls. Jezel and Mara experience gradations and degradations of their lives and perceptions by people who are supposed to love them.
The girls wade through levels of connection, disconnection, trust, distrust, joy and sorrow, they fall in love and hate… losing their direction and missing the ‘straight and narrow’ by miles and miles.
This is the journey of two neglected and naive girls who are swept up into a seditious and provocative adult world.
