Once again, Bikini Atoll becomes the scene of the most dramatic nuclear explosion of all…

What happens if after a decade you return to the same beach – only to find that you never left? You look around and see the same waves of bodies and boys, the same sky, the same open sea… the same feeling of dread.

Bikini is an atomic beach party film – a reaction to dating apps, body issues, and a fear the sun. It’s a world where even the dreamer can’t catch a break, let alone a wave. We’re all at odds with “the muscles”, and everyone has an opinion about what to live for. The men keep rolling in like they’re on a conveyor belt, the bombs keep dropping, and all we can do is keep surfing. Bikini is about letting the waves wash over you. It’s about wanting it easy and wanting it free. It’s about making your life count for something besides the next big wave.

Does it hurt?
