Salty Irina
By Eve Leigh

‘I’ve got the world at the tip of my fingers, I’ve got the world at the tip of my tongue, I’ve got the world in my mouth.”

Salty Irina is the story of two queer girls in love, who see fascism rising in their university town and decide to do something to stop it. But when they go undercover to a local far-right festival, they are shocked by what they find.
