We’­re like fish in a fish tank. We keep swim­ming round in cir­cles, from one end of Kot­ti to the other and back again, until we even­tual­ly mana­ge to jump out of the tank.”

Ber­lin-Kreuz­berg is Nora’s micro­cosm. Nora, the silent obser­ver, is always tag­ging along: At par­ties, at school, at the pool, on roof­tops and in apart­ments. Nora drifts around the mono­to­nous housing blocks with her big sis­ter and her friends, wit­nessing events that seem to cross-fade in the sum­mer light. Girls who want to be slim and pret­ty, boys who say dumb things to pro­vo­ke or becau­se they are in love. Ruth­less smart­pho­ne came­ras and fra­gi­le teen­agers. But Nora has her own way of loo­king at the world, and when she meets Romy, she rea­li­zes why. The­re is music in the air, Nora’s body is chan­ging, and cater­pil­lars are spin­ning their cocoons. Rea­listic and taking on the protagonist’s per­spec­ti­ve, this film cap­tures a sum­mer of chan­ge.
