    • Synopsis
    • What if life were a game? And terrible things could be excused by declaring them “just for fun?” Ada likes this idea. The brainy but abrasive 15-year-old high school outsider meets life’s annoyances with sass and spunk. But when she meets Alev, the school’s new alpha male, her life takes a completely new turn. Though Alev immediately attracts a host of followers, Ada is his soulmate. With her, he can achieve what he wants: Namely, mess with Smutek, the Polish-born German teacher and track & field coach. Alev convinces Ada to seduce the unhappily married man. Capturing everything on video, Alev then blackmails him. The weekly seduction ritual takes an unexpected turn when Smutek and Ada begin to develop real feelings for one another. Life may be just a game, but the players have gone too far, and know that there can be no winner …
