Szani, Tina and Emese: or as they call themselves, the Divas are three twenty-year-old girls who are stuck between teenage years and adulthood, trying to finally finish with this period and graduate. They can talk for hours about makeup, clothes, or profile pictures: these created masks help them hide from their problematic pasts. Máté, a young director, enters the scene, following them with his camera until their graduation, to find out what is hidden behind their perfect makeup. As he gets to know them, their protective layers begin to fade, and in front of his eyes they make progressive steps towards adulthood.
