EVIL

by Mikael Håfström

synopsis

16-year-old Erik's life is tainted by violence and conflict. When he is expelled from school, he is sent to the boarding school Stjärnsberg as a last chance to break free from his old life and continue his studies. But Stjärnsberg is hardly a refuge - here evil is systemised in the form of condoned oppression of younger students by the older ones.
