Astoundingly framed, this story captures a summer of change for young Nora, who lives in Berlin-Kreuzberg, an urban landscape that has rarely been captured with such tenderness.

Lena Urzendowsky plays this girl with utmost reluctance, as a silent observer that always runs along with the circle of friends of her bigger sister. It is only when she gets to know Romy that she realises how much her perception of the world differs from that of her peers, juggling their cellphones, trying to fit in desperately. Suddenly music is in the air, all living things blossom, and Nora along with them. The search for the self is captured with authenticity and dreamlike imagery in this sophomore film by Leonie Krippendorff.
