Two girls, Ari and Oona, dream of breaking free. The Baron, singer of their favorite band Tier sings: “We sense everything, you won’t fool us. We’re desire, lust and instinct...”. But in their families, nobody feels, nobody talks. Ari’s mother refuses to realize that her kids are grown up and her brother terrorizes the family in her colorful design world. Lolita-like Ari gets some missing affection by having sex with grown-up men and competes for the attention of mysterious, black-clad Oona. Oona feels guilty about the suicide of her dad, scratches her arms bloody and paints dark pictures of violence.

The two girls follow their instinct and go on a manhunt, sneak through the jungle of the city, dance with the Baron and bare their teeth. “We’re one of a kind. We understand each other intuitively. Because we are the same species.” Through their friendship, Oona learns how to extrovert her anger and Ari finally feels some kind of self-respect. But Ari starts an affair with Oona’s hated uncle Lukas. When Oona catches them red-handed, she is deeply hurt. The girls see only one last chance to save their friendship… “You should never forget that I could easily eat you…”
