Stefie, an unremarkable teenage loner, is recruited by Jean-Sé, Martin and Lea to record their daily capers with his cellphone. The four pranksters decide to set up a stunt that goes beyond anything they’ve done so far… But this time, who will be the victim?
Prank is a funny, cruel and transgressive coming-of-age tale about first loves, friendship and the loss of innocence.
