EVIL

When young Erik Ponti is accepted at the posh boarding school Stjernsberg, it is his last chance to get away from his life as an underaged gang leader. At Stjernsberg Erik’s violent background and his fathers brutal abuse of him is unknown. At Stjernsberg he encounters Marja, who works in the school kitchen. She captivates Erik completely and they fall in love. A new beginning, a girl and a way out of the evil circles. That’s what Erik hopes for. But he soon encounters a violent system where older students rule over the younger under the disguise of “peer education”, sanctioned by the school. Erik is back in a circle of violence and because of his father’s abuse of him, there seems to be no limits to how much beating he can take…
