When an insecure Surinamese girl persuades her friend to introduce her to the world of dark magical powers, it has unanticipated consequences for their friendship. Exciting drama with horror elements.

Zohra (20) is an insecure, Surinamese girl who at home is the outsider of her Christian family and in the street remains unnoticed. She forces her only friend Suzette to make her luck turn with the help of a dangerous magical ritual. For example, by making the popular soccer player Selwin her friend. This sounds like a fairy tale, but it is not in this drama with horror elements, in which Zohra transforms from a wallflower into a power-greedy monster. Universally recognised themes in a story that stems straight from a unique culture that can only be found in the Netherlands: the Dutch-Surinamese culture.
