All hurtle toward each other.
Full of revenge, they have no idea that
YOU
are watching them.
It's a late-summer night in Berlin and notorious criminal Ragnar Desche isn t too happy. He's just found his brother, Oskar, dead, frozen stiff and sitting in his home next to a swimming pool full of marijuana plants. Someone's flooded the pool and stolen a Range Rover, but what's worse is that Ragnar's huge cache of drugs is missing and he's going to want it back.
Meanwhile, nearby, a group of teenage girls are out at the movies. Thinking about boys and worrying about acne, they notice that the prettiest member of their clique is missing. She hasn t been seen for days, and the trouble she's found herself in is about to set all of the girls on a collision course with the Desche gang and drag them into a fight for their lives a fight that might turn out to be more evenly matched than it first appears.
A gritty, pulsating, psychological thriller told through the eyes of an enormous cast of characters, "You" is an audacious and unpredictable combination of pulp, pluck, and revenge.
