Film Synopsis


TOPLESS is a narrative short film that follows two strangers as they undergo breast removal operations for very different reasons. Jules has cancer and needs a double mastectomy. Harrison is physically transitioning from female-bodied to male-bodied and needs top surgery. Their paths cross months after surgery as they are both swimming, topless, in a public pool and one of them is asked to cover-up or leave.

This film is inspired by the real life of Jodi Jaecks and the events that took place when she wanted to go swimming as part of her recovery from a double mastectomy.
