DARK DREAMERS

***

17-year-old Rebekka is feeling hollow and empty after her brother Dennis died by suicide two years ago. Dennis’ friend Vincent is the only one who can help her through this difficult time. But Vincent is an outsider, accepted by nobody, especially since he jumped off the bridge with Dennis and survived. Even though Rebekka’s parents do not want her to spend time with Vincent, the two of them start a relationship that is healing and destructive at the same time. When things are threatening to escalate, Rebekka has to leave everything behind in order to find her way back to herself.
