Inhalt

Truth or Dare

A year before her final exam Annika is kicked out of school. Game Over, Rien ne va plus – A disaster! Annika doesn't dare to tell her parents. So every morning she leaves home pretending to go to school. She is hiding on a scrap yard, waiting for a good opportunity to confess. But the longer she waits the harder it is to tell the truth. She doesn't want to disappoint anyone and no-one wants to listen to her. So she continues lying. The lie becomes the most important part of Annika's life and she is struggling to keep up appearances. It's an adventurous life to be a liar and it can be romantic too: She meets Kai, her first big love. But Annika's permanent lying threatens to destroy their love.
