Things aren’t going too smoothly for 15-year-old Anna Elisabeth. Her dad is spending more and more time at work and is even distant when at home. Her mom is suffering from health problems that she avoids discussing with Anna. When the girl’s best friend suddenly starts dating her class crush, their friendship is put to the test. What’s more, all of Anna’s classmates think it’s cool to tease her about every little thing. The bullying continues on their class camping trip, during which someone snaps a graphic and embarrassing photo of her and tries to use it for blackmail. However, that’s the last straw: Anna decides to fight back and finally stand up to her tormenters.
