62nd TIFF: Greek Premiere

Teenagers Maya and Jana are inseparable and do everything together. Headstrong Jana usually takes the lead and Maya follows. One night at a party they catch Elena, the most popular girl in school, having sex on video with Maya’s long-term crush. Jana convinces Maya to post the video and when it goes viral, Elena’s life is ruined. A heated confrontation between the three girls leaves Elena missing and Maya wanting to go to the police… But that isn’t what Jana wants… A coming-of-age story about the breakdown of a friendship between two teenage girls, a story exploring the social media bullying phenomenon spreading amongst adolescents.
