Bike-rider Mati and her gang of male friends race around their neighbourhood and drunkenly harass the girls of the village. Mati enjoys her status as one of the boys, but things change when her best friend Sebastian falls for her. The pressure on Mati increases as her family push her to act ‘like a girl’, when she meets Carla, an independent girl who offers Matti a different path. An original and powerful take on the growing pains of young women.
