16-year-old Eveliina’s life derails at a small local gas station when she sees her mother passionately kissing a woman. Eveliina tries to sabotage the affair at all costs to get her parents to fall in love again – or at least stay together. Eveliina realizes that she is the glue that holds her parents together: If she is in any trouble, her parents focus and regroup to support her. So Eveliina fakes depression and mood swings. Soon, the boundaries between the made up and real anxiety begin to blur, and Eveliina is no longer sure of the truth, or even the usefulness of her actions.
