Artist Anna Odell was bullied and treated as an outsider at school. This situation recurs twenty years after the graduation, when she finds out she has not been invited to the reunion party. Trying to come to terms with this issue that has haunted her for years, she makes a film reconstructing this party, as if she attended it and told her former classmates everything she has wanted to tell them all these years. What happens next is even more paradoxical. Anna tries to meet her classmates to show them the film she made about them and get their feedback. This conceptual art project is complex and highly original. Mixing facts, fiction and reconstructed non-fiction, Odell tests the limits of reality and identity and paints a controversial portrait of a society that does not want to know itself.
