New Directors Competition
Five friends grow up in the middle of nowhere in Germany and have to decide whether to leave or stay after they finish school. Katja, Sascha, Benni, Laila and Schöller —they seek each other, they run away from each other. They kiss, they brawl. They love each other. A kaleidoscope of violence, love and loneliness where intimacy and pain go hand in hand.
Presented at Berlin International Film Festival.
Marie Tragousti, Sammy Scheuritzel, Michelangelo Fortuzzi, Luna Schaller, Paul Michael Stiehler
