Summer swimming in Spain sounds like every teenager’s dream. For outsider Sara, however, it’s the epitome of a nightmare. The full-figured daughter of a butcher is the target of cruel ridicule for her appearance. Like a prince on a white horse, she is one day rescued by a mysterious man in a white van who kidnaps her aggressors. Sara is in a tough battle with morality – should she tell the police what happened? Or will she help the weirdo cover up the kidnapping and finally get her revenge? This chilling story about the personal transformation of a fragile victim of bullying satisfies with a coherent plot and great cinematography.
