Two disparate teenage girls from two broken homes develop an intense bond over their mutually dysfunctional backgrounds, and wage a desperate battle to save their friendship following a devastating act of betrayal. Misunderstood 15-year-old Ari feels completely alone in the world, and compensates for her perceived isolation by seeking sex with strangers. Meanwhile, in the wake of her father’s suicide, black-clad Oona resorts to cutting and grotesque art as means of expressing her pent-up grief. On the surface Ani and Oona couldn’t be more different. A closer look, however, reveals just how much they have in common. In time Ani and Oona help each other to grow, and transcend the tragedies that once defined them. But their friendship is put to the test when Ari begins sleeping with Oona’s despised uncle Lukas, shattering the trust that helped to save the girls from their self-destructive impulses. Now, only one thing can salvage the relationship between Ani and Oona, and if it doesn’t work all they’ll be left with is memories of that fleeting moment when anything seemed possible.
