Nico is breezing through an idyllic Berlin summer, spending her days bantering with her geriatric patients and partying with best friend Rosa. But her easy-going attitude is shattered when she experiences a violent hate crime. Director Eline Gehring's sensitive debut delicately navigates the intricacies of trauma as Nico's former relationships decline. Nico begins seeking comfort in a rigorous karate class, and a budding romance with a pretty carnival worker. Sara Fazilat, who also co-writes, gives a dynamic performance in the titular role, fully embodying a woman fighting for strength in a hostile society. (Sydney Film Festival 2021)
