Teenagers Maya and Yana are inseparable and do everything together. The assertive Gianna usually makes the decisions and Maya follows. One night at a party, the two catch Elena, the most popular girl at school, having sex with the boy who has been interested in Maya for a long time, and so they videotape them. Yana persuades Maya to share the video, but when it makes the rounds of the internet, Elena's life is ruined. An intense confrontation between the three girls leads to Elena's disappearance and Maya wants to go to the police. But Yana has something else in mind. An adult story about the breakup of a friendship between two teenage girls, which explores in detail the phenomenon of bullying on social media that spreads among the generation of teenagers.


Jana and Maya are inseparable friends who fancy a guy at school, but their classmate gets there first. The friendship of the two adolescent girls is, however, threatened the moment they have to face the dire consequences of their manipulative behaviour. This subtle debut is set in the teen community, for whom amassing followers on social media is more important than cultivating genuine relationships. The film adopts an authentic approach to capture the formative moments of youth, which teach us to accept responsibility for our actions. The end result is a psychological probe in which Dina Duma betrays an unquestionable talent for depicting intimacy and rivalry between teenage girls, along with a seasoned gift for steering her cast.
