Based on a queer Inuit myth, War Lesbian takes place in a deafeningly snowy part of Alaska where Ellen DeGeneres, who has for our purposes devolved into a demonic demigod, watches on as a womb gives birth to a thought. They name the thought (who is actually a girl) Sedna. When her secret is out, her father Mitch drags her out to sea on a boat and throws her overboard. Clinging onto dear life, Mitch raises an axe and chops all her fingers off. Two bloody stumps and some serious daddy issues later, Sedna takes on the oceanic underworld, hungry and waging a war to find herself.
