Henna, 18, becomes literally blind because of envy for a new girl, Silja. Henna stalks Silja with a pair of binoculars, falls over and temporarily loses all eyesight. When Henna starts seeing again she doesn't tell anyone.

It's about ambition and overcoming the poison of envy.
It's about fun and partying during the last school year before the student degree.

The film is also a satire of television's song contests. Henna and her best friend Silja at turns take it seriously and spoof it. Making rap music videos for YouTube is a major form of self-expression.

It's a backwoods community in where Henna used to be the star. Along comes Silja from Vantaa, Metropolitan Helsinki area, and now everybody is interested only in this bright and popular new girl. On a school observation trek Henna slips, hurts her eyes and has to wear an eyemask and shades.
