Logline

This film is shown as part of the opening ceremony.

The summer of 2019 in Berlin: Overlooking the rooftops of the city, Aimee and Anissa are forging their plans for the future, wondering when puberty will end, how to have good sex, and what their plan might be after graduating from high school. Lea is similarly disoriented. When she’s not in school, she works at a supermarket and likes to go dancing in the evenings.
