Fraternal twin sisters Emma and Chantal are worlds apart. Emma is self-conscious, and unsure of which path to take in life — she dreams of starting a band (they have a pie chart) with her best friend Gary, who secretly has a crush on her. Chantal, on the other hand, is beautiful, confident and knows exactly where her life is headed. When their parents go away for the summer, their simmering sibling rivalry threatens to boil over… especially when the mysterious boy next door moves back in. Metal Heart is a laugh-out-loud, coming-of-age comedy-drama about family and growing up, while also being poignant, sophisticated and wise.
