Careful, kids – rock’n’roll can get you pregnant. Or that’s what one Mormon teen believes in this cute lo-fi indie from first-timer Rebecca Thomas.

Growing up in a repressive religious commune (overseen by pastor Billy Zane), virginal Rachel (Julia Garner) sneaks a listen to a Blondie cover and ends up with a suspiciously immaculate conception.
