Synopsis

Wiebke lives together with her nine-year-old adoptive daughter Nicolina on in idyllic horse farm. She gets the chance to adopt another girl, 5-year-old Raya, to provide Nicolina with the longed-for sister. After harmonious first weeks, Wiebke realizes that Raya, initially shy and charming, is becoming increasingly aggressive and poses a danger to herself and others. The mother will soon have to cross borders and take extreme decisions to protect her cubs. Katrin Gebbe explores the idea of motherhood with her fearless star Nina Hoss and dives deep into the realm of drama bordering on horror.

A powerful female tale, this is one the most daring offerings from Germany this year and started mesmerising audiences in Venice and Toronto.
