Scene from "A Piece of Me" (photo © Peter Steuger)

During the emotional roller coaster ride that is adolescence, a 16-year-old boy is confronted with one of the biggest life-changing events that a man can face: becoming a father...

Jonas is a sensitive, intelligent teenager, excellent at school and eager to please. One day, Vicky, a girl he met at a party appears out of the blue at his school and reveals she is pregnant with his baby. Jonas denies that he is the father and wants nothing to do with her. He thinks that is the end of the matter and continues with his life. But then, 10 months later, Vicky reappears and shows him the baby. Jonas sees his daughter for the first time and is immediately smitten. He tentatively begins a relationship with Vicky and the baby but is unable to express his true feelings for them. When Vicky finds out that he has not been honest with her, she leaves him. Realizing that he has lost everything, Jonas finds the courage to reject expectations of him and express freely the love he has for his daughter.
