The slice-of-life story is about Mariana (15) who grows up in a multi-ethnic part of Oslo's east side, in an environment where girls have to fight for their right to be themselves in a male chauvinist youth universe. Mariana is annoyingly in love with Ali2, the schools fuckboy who is always surrounded by one blonde too many. The new kid in class, David, is given a hard time for being gay. When older brother, Hector, decides to make something for himself, and joins the Norwegian Armed Forces on a mission in Afghanistan, Mariana´s family is left with an emotional hole-in-the-heart. The situation leaves Mariana growing from a typical irresponsible teenager to becoming a strong young woman who starts taking responsibility. She becomes the girl who stands up both for herself as well as for those around her.
