Diva of Finland
Henna, 18, a small-town girl from the north becomes literally blind because of envy for a new girl from the south, Silja. Henna stalks Silja with a pair of binoculars, falls over, hurts her eyes and temporarily loses all eyesight. When Henna starts seeing again she doesn't tell anyone. Henna sees her envious antics have messed up Silja's life, and that's not what she wanted after all.
