Norsk filminstitutt

During her summer holidays, twelve year-old Anna volunteers to collect trash along the seashores of northern Norway. She falls for five years older Aaron, the handsome group leader, and she is confronted with physical attraction and intense jealousy, feelings she hasn’t felt before – a budding sexuality.
