Synopsis

Ada is 19. A man she knows invites her to dinner and she accepts. Everything goes so quickly. She doesn’t defend herself. Her genitals get torn, her mind is scattered. In spite or because of that, she goes back twice to confront this man.
Her story intertwines with others, each one different, yet all the same – a nasty, insane and commonplace story.
