Yannis (15) and his mother are moving into her boyfriend’s apartment. While dealing with his mother’s
indifference towards him, he stealthily starts hanging out with Olga, a socially secluded punk woman who
lives in the basement of his apartment building, has blue hair, wears colourful dresses, black leather jackets
full of spikes, and steals from the supermarket to cook well prepared meals for herself. Simultaneously,
Yannis associates with a group of teenagers, the leader of which bullies him systematically, as well as he
does with Olga whenever he sees her in the streets. Yannis struggles to find balance between his need for
acceptance by his peers and his “secret” relationship with Olga, until he has to choose sides. And he
decides boldly to go with Olga’s side.
