UTES Interstitial: Lola

Years in the past... Lola Sunn is gearing up for what's supposed to be the biggest presentation of her life. She's top of her class in the Prodigy program, the favorite of her director, and widely popular with her cohort. She's a woman who needs no introduction for the meteoric rise that she's had. But underneath everything, who really is the woman they call Lola Sunn? Featuring seaweed chips, "gal pals", and estranged family relationships.

Trigger warnings: Light medical talk around prosthetics, ableism, gaslighting, alcohol, a loud crashing sound (31:49), yelling.
