“How do children define themselves or rebel against their parents, when the lines separating the generations seem to disintegrate?” - filmmaker Pia Marais
At 14 years old, Stevie should be at school or hanging out with kids her age, instead - having reunited with her druggie father (Turkish-German actor Birol ünel) after his release from prison - she spends her days engaged in petty crime and time-wasting. Shacking up in a large house in rural Germany, her family attracts a ménage of hangers-on and free-spirited hippies, none of whom want to grow up or take responsibility.
In a world of instability Stevie is left to her own devices, discovering her own voice and sexuality, and growing in a way her parents always refused to.
