Synopsis by Connor McMadden
The first Dogma-certified Swiss film, Joyride (Dogma #14) is based on a true story about teenage violence and murder. The main character is 18-year-old Sandra, a young Swiss woman bored with her life in a bleak industrial zone. But things get more exciting the day she meets up with a gang of neighborhood toughs, led by her heartthrob, Daniel. When Sandra becomes a member of the group and joins in their mischief, Daniel finds himself falling in love with her. They begin spending more and more time in one another's company until Daniel's lackeys decide it has gone too far. When Daniel refuses to dump Sandra, the gang arranges for a joyride into the countryside where they plot to get rid of her themselves. The film features Edward Piccin, better known to Swiss television audiences as the lovable Röbi on the popular sitcom, Mannerzimmer.
