Turn Me On, Dammit! (Norwegian: Få meg på, for faen!) or Turn Me On, Goddammit! is a Norwegian coming-of-age comedy film premiered in 2011. It is based on Olaug Nilssen’s novel of the same name.[2] Set in Skoddeheimen, a fictional small town in western Norway,[3] the film is about Alma (Helene Bergsholm), a 15 year old girl and her sexual awakening.

Plot

Alma is addicted to telephone sex hotlines. She secretly feels for Arthur, an equally shy teenager. One day he approaches her in a very bizarre manner. She tells her best friends about this and her story makes her the talk of the town. When Arthur denies the episode, she's subsequently considered a slandering crank and becomes an outcast.
