Synopsis : 

Daniela is a 17 year-old born and bred in a strict Evangelical family. A rebel by nature, she tries to follow the "right path" after having been after unmasked as a fornicator by her incredulous parents. But on the road to salvation she discovers a devastating obstacle to achieving her much-desired spiritual harmony; a sex-drive irreconcilable with the canons of her religion.
