Category: Edition 2018

Manja (17) lives in a high-rise development on the outskirts of the city. As she rushes in the arms of rebel Louk (17) who is on the run from hunters in the woods, a first love is born. No lies, no traces, no fear - this is Louk's credo. And Manja follows her in quiet surrender. But when Manja realizes that Louk's idealism hides a deep wound left by the loss of her mother, she helps her to say goodbye to the past - and learns to let herself go.
