A dark Christmas drama about clenched fists, blood and passion
For Maria, life is an endless party. Then one day, when she is brought home in a police car, all her partying comes to a screeching halt. Mum can’t take it anymore and sends Maria to live with her grandma with an absolute ban on mobile phones.
At grandma’s house, Maria is captivated by the priest’s son, Johannes, even though she still has a boyfriend in the city. This sets the stage for a classic romance drama about clenched fists and blood.
