Director Luzie Loose tells the story of Elisa and Anthea, two 15-year-old girls whose mismatched friendship gives them support and orientation during a difficult phase in their lives. To maintain their bond, they develop a sinister game that takes on destructive dynamics. After Elisa suffers a physical breakdown, which is mercilessly filmed by her classmates* with their cell phones, the two simply turn the cameras around in revenge. "I deal intensively and passionately with how children and young people grow up today. I observe that they are growing up faster and faster in our ever faster turning world. They are independent, educated and worldly - but they are also overwhelmed and disoriented." (Luzie Loose)
