Those who used to keep a diary as teenagers know the warm and fuzzy feeling you get when rereading the melodramatic entries. Writer Alma Mathijsen also carefully documented her adolescent secrets. Now a grownup woman, she reads from her most intimate scribblings from years gone by. In this film, the exciting adventures, thrilling thoughts and shameful events are visualised with hilarious animations. Long before Alma wrote books, she recorded in her love book which boys she was in love with and whether they ‘dug’ her as well.
