Synopsis

Mirjam (14) is a bold and curious girl living in a small quiet town in rural Estonia, who is fascinated in the over-sexualized Instagram stars in her phone. One summer evening she accidentally encounters two city boys Chris (15) and Taavi (16) at her favourite hang-out spot by the sea. The boys have just met in a sports camp. The three strangers manage to turn an innocent flirt into a provocative power game to hide their own insecurities. The dare or not to dare game gets out of hand and none of them is brave enough to stop the downward spiral. Offended Taavi forces seductive Mirjam to go until the end with a sexual challenge on naive Chris. The unexpected violence leaves all three of them with hidden scars forever.
