Based on a YA novel by screenwriter Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith, Trinkets follows the friendship of three high school girls who bond at a Shoplifters Anonymous meeting.
Elodie (Brianna Hildebrand), Moe (Kiana Madeira), and Tabitha (Quintessa Swindell) become friends after finding each other at a Shoplifters Anonymous meeting. The characters have different personalities and personas in school, keeping their friendship a secret: Elodie is a leabian introvert; Moe favors punk style; while Tabitha comes from a wealthy family. They form a deep bond after finding out that they (almost) all have a shoplifting habit. Each also finds in the others strength as they navigate their own problems such as family and school issues.
Elodie is a lesbian, but at the beginning of the series has never been in a relationship. Mel and Tabitha try hard to be her wing women. She has never had to come out, she had a supportive family who gave her the environment to be herself since birth.
