  • Bleeding Eyes is a story about girl envy. In the sombre darkness of winter 18-year-old Henna becomes obsessed with Silja, the new girl in town. Silja seems to be better at everything she does and Henna can’t look away. Henna’s manic stalking makes her stumble on her binoculars and she ends up temporarily losing her eyesight. All her future plans are shattered and her worst fears seem to become true. She is hiding her ugly eyes behind a pair of sunglasses. Blind Henna still manages to seek vengeance and succeeds – Silja becomes a social outcast.
