When the 16-year-old Onerva moves into a new town, she immediately catches Elvis’s eye. After spending some afternoons and evenings together, it is obvious for everyone that they have feelings for each other. But surrendering to those feelings seems impossible for the two when there’s a group of friends giving mixed advice.

One evening all the young people of the town gather together to party in an abandoned factory, which gives Elvis and Onerva a long-awaited moment to be alone. However, as a consequence of the evening, rumours start to spread revealing the downside of peer pressure, strong group dynamics and the need of acceptance.
