FILTHY is the coming-of-age drama of 17-year-old Lena. In love with a boy for the first time, Lena longs for freedom and adventure. Her world is shattered when her teacher, whom all her classmates have a crush on, rapes her. Instead of sharing her trauma, Lena keeps it a secret, even from her best friend.
