Logline

LOVERBOY

Cem is charming. Cem drives a Mercedes. Cem gives Caro all the presents she never knew she needed: Mobile phones, clothes, night clubs "where not even the cops dare go." Cem buys an apartment and seduces Caro into seeing johns there, claiming he owes money to the wrong people. Her LOVERBOY drags 15-year-old Caro into a red-light netherworld, where neither her teachers her parents nor her best friend can reach her.
