Karlovy Vary prize-winning, coming-of-age film with genuine insight into the friendship of two inseparable teenage girls. This remarkable debut with brilliant performances of young Macedonian actresses, has an unique cinematic approach that captures formative moments of youngsters in the times when one click on social media can ruin someone’s life.


Jana and Maya are inseparable friends with all the joy and complication of their adolescence until they get involved in the accidental murder of a classmate. Can friendship survive rivalry as they will have to face the dire repercussions of their manipulative behaviour? For the teen community amassing followers on social media seems to be more important than cultivating genuine relationships but they will have to accept responsibility for their actions.

Director’s statement

A story exploring the social media bullying phenomenon spreading amongst teenagers. We live in a time where one “click” holds great power. When I first started to write the script, I always questioned myself: Am I exaggerating with the peer violence and social media bullying? I thought that these things were happening in my generation and are now past. I was secretly hoping that somehow this new generation has evolved, but after I have done my research, I realized I was unfortunately wrong. While researching the world of adolescents, I learned that how they represent themselves on social media is more important than who they really are. I was now even more eager to make this film and open a discussion, turning the attention to this generation struggling.
