Alma tiene 15 años y es consumida por sus hormonas fuera de control y sus fantasías con su novio Arthur y, por otro lado, sueños sucios con prácticamente todo hombre al que le pone los ojos encima. Alma y su mejor amiga viven un aburrido pueblo de Noruega llamado Skoddeheimen el cual odian. La madre de Alma está abacorada por las cuentas de las llamadas a líneas de sexo de alma.

15-year-old Alma (Helene Bergsholm) is consumed by her out-of-control hormones and fantasies that range from sweetly romantic images of Artur, the boyfriend she yearns for, to down-and-dirty daydreams about practically everybody she lays eyes on. Alma and her best friend Sara live in an insufferably boring little town in the hinterlands of Norway called Skoddeheimen, a place they loathe so much that every time their school bus passes the sign that names it, they routinely flip it off. At home, Alma’s single mother is overwhelmed and embarrassed by her daughter’s extravagant phone sex bills and wears earplugs to muffle Alma’s round-the-clock acts of self-gratification.

La directora y escritora Jannicke Systad Jacobsen (Noruega, 1975) estudió dirección con concentración en ficción en FAMU, República Checa, y en la London International Film School. Sus documentales incluyen Los hijos del payaso (2005) y Escenas de una amistad (2009)

Writer-director Jannicke Systad Jacobsen (b. 1975, Norway) studied film directing with focus on ficton directing at FAMU, The National Film School of the Czech Republic, and at London International Film School. Her documentaries, including The Clown Children (2005) and Scenes From A Friendship (2009), are notable for their sense of humor.

Boasting a sympathetically hormonal heroine, her first fiction feature, the teen dramedy, Turn Me On, Goddammit (2011), scored Best Screenplay honors in the world narrative competition at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival and inspired applause from hard-nosed buyers during a Cannes market screening.
