Anarchy emerges at a public pool party when a group of small girls push the limits of their strength and power.  

It’s a birthday party at a public pool disco, and underdog Ronja challenges the girls’ alpha female to battle for dominance. The game escalates quickly, and as the thirst for power grows, Ronja and the other girls lose control.
