UGLY AND BLIND

by Tom Lass

synopsis

Ferdi is ugly. And he desperately wants a girlfriend but he can't because: ugly. One day however he meets Jona and Jona is blind. For the first time in his life, there is hope. What Ferdi doesn't know is that Jona isn't really blind. She's just pretending. After she ran away from home to drop out of school she needed a place to stay and began to play blind to live with her Cousine Cecile in the home for the blind.
