Greek Premiere

An introverted high-school girl named Masha sees herself as an outsider, except for the times she hangs around with Yana and Senia, who share her non-conformist status. While she is trying to navigate through an intense time of the pre-graduation year, Masha falls in love and is forced to leave her comfort zone. A deeply personal story about self-discovery and the patience it requires.
