The Dark Horse
It’s a small Swedish community, idyllic on the surface. But when fourteen-year-old Jennifer claims to have been raped by classmate Alexander, everything changes. The rumour rapidly spreads throughout the community, and more and more people are convinced that Jennifer is lying. Gradually an entire village turns against the young girl and her family. Evidence and decisions of court mean nothing. The villagers start laying down their own rules and laws. There are no limits. The only thing that matters is sticking with the flock.
