In a dystopian, performance-oriented society, adolescents struggle for good grades while their dreams are shattered by an indifferent system.

In a not-to-distant future, in which integration serves to protect the elite and isolate the weak, the cities are hellholes and the countryside holds the fairytale promise of a better life, a young school girl is found in the woods during the annual graduates' assessment camp. Known for his upstanding morals, a teacher breaks with his own values on a quest for the truth – and is increasing entangled in a net of his own lies. Suddenly someone confesses to a murder that they couldn‘t have committed, and the fragile cohesion of a youthful elite society is threatened to destroy itself.
