This chilling and shocking debut in six chapters was inspired by a true story of cruelty and violence among pre-pubescent children. It takes place on the last day of the year before summer holidays begin. Gabrysia has one last chance to tell her classmate she likes him, but the only way to get him to the secret meeting is through blackmail. An uncompromising, stylistically powerful view on today's bullying and one of the faces of the evil.
