Karolina is a writer and obsessed with parties, sex and drugs. Her life is a tightrope walk between extreme euphoria and disappointment, and studded with unsuccessful relationships. Although she has all the freedom in the world, she yearns for ever more independence and is clearly heading for self-destruction. The film shows 54 moments in Karolina's daily life. A shrill Instagram catalogue in the age of the selfie that could be assembled in 43 billion variations and still present the same overall picture of egotism, escalation and loneliness.
