v
On stage 17-year-old Sarah gives it her all. When she performs there is this instant of suspense in which she appears to transform completely into her character. But what lies behind Sarah's radical stage presence? A dark secret she is trying to express; A claustrophobic family environment, which she cannot break free from; Her longing for someone she can confide in. But the more vehemently Sarah expresses this desire, the more she ends up alienating the people willing to get close to her. A few days from the life of an outsider and her incessant struggle to escape her solitude.
