Sixteen year old model Violetta Crelavani has a tough life. She desires to be perfect, while living up to her model mother's charmed past. She critiques herself in the mirror every single day, but cannot look into her own eyes. Encountering an eating disorder, heart break, and betraying her own friends, Vi has a choice to make: what means more to her? Friends, modeling, writing, there's so much. A road trip to rebuild her lost friendships teaches Violetta that her own flaws are a part of who she is, and a gentle boy will teach her that she might be able to rebuild her battered heart. But will she accept who he truly is? Violetta is confronted with her passion and what is on the other hand: modeling. A world of creativity or a world of beauty, dreams come true and her mother's wrath, or suffering and a peaceful home life? Violetta has to decide who she will be when she looks in the mirror.
