Lena has an airplane tatooed on her neck. She dreams of being as rich as Rihanna and of buying the 10-floor apartment bock she lives in with her sister, because her mother is working in Italy. Miki dreams about conquering the world, like the actor from the poster abive his bed. But in reality, things are different: at school he is bullied by Alex and Bobo, at home his uncle strictly oversees his food ratio. On the roof of the apartment block, where he meets Lena sometimes, life seems easier. On the last page of her biology workbook, Laura writes down the names of every boy she kissed. Andra counts the calories in her meals and is in love with the English teacher. On the last day of school, a tragedy happens that no one anticipated.
