This film is dedicated to Judy Wuchte. “I cannot thank you enough Grandma for everything you have done for me. For instilling my love for film, for pushing me to follow this dream, for being my biggest fan. I’ll never forget you and how you have changed my life.”

We Were Monsters And Detectives follows Melanie and Sofia, two 16 year old girls, over the course of a summer in a forgotten town. Melanie and Sofia have been best friends for as long as any of them can remember, but this summer is different. This summer, they are facing the challenges of adolescence as they discover that growing up doesn’t always mean growing together.
