The four girlfriends Christina, Cecile, Trine and Pernille live in the suburbs of Copenhagen. They care little for school. Instead they go partying, get drunk, experiment with drugs and approach boys. A tragedy takes its course as Cecile’s boyfriend Shaid approaches Christine. But although Christine rejects him, Cecile believes she is being cheated on by her best friend. She stirs up the other girls against Christine, who suddenly stands alone, having to defend herself against victimization. Teenage jealousies slowly but surely develop into a fight over life and death. Director Christian E. Christiansen has successfully blended documentary-style camerawork, grainy film material and close-to-life characters to create a gripping depiction of contemporary youth culture. Simultaneously the film portraits a generation left alone with their emotions without guidance by their parents and losing touch with reality as a result.
