Adolescence can be a lonely place. Where do you turn when no one seems to understand what's going on inside of you? The film follows Klara, a 15-year old girl, during her summer visit at relatives. It focuses on her relationship with her cousin, a girl of about the same age and delves into Klara's feelings of isolation as she finds herself transitioning into womanhood. Klara's cousin initiates her into the world of adulthood, but this path is strewn with jealousy, power struggles, deception and revenge.
