Stella and her boyfriend Toni occupy a universe of parties, drugs, and petty crime, which seems considerably more alluring than the world of school and family that Magnea knows. The young girl joins with her new friends in robbing men who answer lonely hearts ads. Once a straight-A student, Magnea is drawn deeper and deeper into that milieu and, by the time her parents realise what’s happening with their daughter, it’s too late. Magnea’s new-found sense of freedom doesn’t last long. She encounters the wrong men and descends into a hell from which her family tries to rescue her in vain.

Based on true events.
