13-year-old Sofie and her best friends Emma and Amanda have made it: They are finally attending high school and will thus enter the realm of cool parties, new friends and cute boys!As a matter of fact, the three manage to get invited to the coolest of parties, where they will most definitely meet Mouse, the hippest guy at school. Cuddling, dancing, smoking – Sofie drinks too much and faints. Promptly Mouse and his buddies take advantage of the situation and take humiliating photos of her which are handed around in school shortly afterwards. All of a sudden Sofie is called a slut. Amanda and Emma fear for their own reputation and keep out of her way. What’s even worse, Sofie’s father teaches music at that very school...Friendship, prejudices, loyalty, respect, self-esteem – despite these serious topics young Swedish director Teresa Fabik succeeds in equipping her debut film with a warm and even humorous tone.
