Storyline

Linda and Eta are best friends. They are 14 years old and live in Dubrovnik: Eta with her mother and grandmother, Linda with her father, who is a heart specialist at the local hospital and once lived in Switzerland, where Linda was born.

One of their favorite places is the pine forest of Petka Hill on the outskirts of the city. On the first warm spring day, Eta and Linda retreat to a secret beach beneath the cliffs of Petka Hill. Once again they have an argument, this time with horrific consequences. Eta is left for dead on a rock by the sea, while Linda spends the night wandering aimlessly through the forest. However, the inhabitants of Dubrovnik don't want to know about the guilt and desolation plaguing Linda after her friend's death. The sunny, Mediterranean harbor town now seems ...

So bad it was almost entertaining
15 April 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OK, to start with, we watched this film by accident. The description of the film on the medium we were watching on was of a completely different film -we were waiting for "2 teenage girls to have a falling out with shocking consequences"...I selected about 6 great films to watch and my gf chose this instead! What we got was what looks like a pretty awful TV 'Lifetime' style film. The acting and plotting were so hilariously bad it was quite enjoyable poking fun at it while we were watching it. I did literally fall asleep about halfway through but somehow managed to catch up with the plot!. The plot was like reading one of those lurid and ridiculous 'photo story' agony stories in the tabloid newspapers. I still don't quite understand the link between the 'cure for cancer' and the 'virus' in the film. Very bad!
