Magda, 11, is a newfound black metal-fan. She is not like the other girls, something she knows all too well. When Halloween comes, she has no one to go trick or treating with. She lives with her Polish father and her 16-year-old big sister. When her sister goes to an illegal party, Magda is left alone, and has a bad run-in with some girls from school.
But during the evening she meets Nils Olav who she is in love with and who is also a metal-fan. The two hit it off, and Magda gets the confidence to ignore the popular girls.
