    Drama

    Selim clicks through Sabrina’s profile pictures on Facebook. Milena meets adult men from chat rooms. Lara is bullied because she leaves her pubic hair unshaved. She and her classmates are completely normal youths – in search of acceptance and sexual experiences. In this modern age of Facebook, WhatsApp and YouTube, the pressure to portray yourself in the Internet as cool, sexy and as experienced as possible is enormous. In reality, the 14-year-old teenagers find their limits are soon reached. The result is a tragedy where the border between victim and perpetrator and guilt and innocence is entirely blurred.
