The Sundance cinematography award-winner, directed by Helene Hegemann and based on the controversial novel she wrote at 17, is a wild ride through the Berlin party scene. 16-year-old Mifti is largely ignored by her wealthy father and struggles to connect with her peers, so she immerses herself in the world of adults and parties, drugs, love affairs and casual sex. With a great soundtrack of soul, R&B and hip hop, Hegemann tells a stylish, impressionistic tale about the difficulties of finally growing up.

'[A] turbulent teen odyssey through Berlin's hedonistic excesses.' - Wendy Ide, Screen International
