Tessi joins a new class after summer holidays. She is 14 years old. Her single mother had to change the job and town with her. Her dad died two years ago. He talks to her in her dreams alot, she tells him how much she is missing him. In class she becomes friend with Mira, but Josey and her fan club Kathi, Lucy, Marcy and Lara are scaring her. Josey is the leading singer in the school band. She dreams of a great career as a pop star, while she is annoying everyone else in the band with her attitude. Especially Danny, her boyfriend. His is the band leader who writes all the songs. As Danny get notice of Tessi and listens to her wonderful voice, the story turns into tragedy ...
This piece deals with mobbing attacks inside a
social group in times of the internet and social networks. The students
use "facelook" alot and Tessi becomes a victim of false claims and a
fake "facelook" profile. Only one person can safe the child in the end
We want to bring back in mind the risks of using
social networks on the internet. By all major advantages of the
internet it is important to use it in a way, that noone gets hurt or
discriminated. Its all about tolerance, respect and to know the own
limits and those of others.
