Truth or Dare
screenable online: 5 episodes
Truth or Dare is the story of the first great love, a friendship that means more than anything else, obsessions that must be kept secret and the strive for popularity.
The realistic drama series is about self-acceptance among pre-teens and attempts them to master challenges that life throws at them – whether it is about identity, love, friendship, family or school. The series about best friends Sanne and Tara aims to reduce the fear many young people have of being not good enough, and thereby hopes to strengthen the viewers’ self-esteem.
The first season is told mainly from the character Sanne, who is a vulnerable and somewhat insecure girl who struggles with OCD. Sanne is terrified of being unsupported as the "weird one" and is willing to do anything to keep her best friend Tara. When Sanne fails Tara one day, Tara breaks the friendship and Sanne is left alone. She feels guilt and shame, and the obsessive-compulsive disorder escalates so much that it becomes difficult to function normally in everyday life.
The second season is told mainly from the character Tara, who is looking forward to starting secondary school. Her joy does however turn to horror when she discovers that none of her friends will be starting in the same class. In the first year of secondary school, it’s all about friends, love and how much you are willing to sacrifice to become - and stay - popular.
