Sasha is the lover of the Dutch gangster Michael. When he takes his family on vacation in Turkey, he brings Sasha along. Sasha recklessly enjoys his vacation villa, shopping trips, and wild parties. But she crashes into trouble when she veers from her prescribed role and harmlessly flirts with a stranger. The young Sasha begins learning the dark side of her dream life of luxury. Dark comedy meets rugged thriller in this visually seductive and provocative ambiguous portrait of unequal power relationships.
