Based on a best-selling novel by Christina Herrströms. Every school follows a social structure where the cool and popular dominate and the nerds and quiet types remain in the periphery. Signe is a bright 15 year old girl, but she's very shy and reserved, resigned to being an outsider. Things are as they are, until a new girl arrives who changes everything. Signe finds herself becoming less of a shy girl and a thousand times stronger. Written by
Good intentions. So good intentions. Too good intentions and you're wandering to whom this film points. Not really to people in that age.
In this classroom, the boys are dominating. There are the usual fractions, like we maybe all know them from our own school-time. Some pupils have the power, the structure can never change, until Saga turns up. She also turns things upside-down for a while.
But the morals here are the ABC of grown-up's lessons for young people's lives. This is how it ought to be and too pity it isn't or doesn't become that way. Very simplified indeed. Life was never that full of possible solutions even at school
