Alex is a 16-year-old misfit, a school drop-out – she’s been using drugs, cutting herself and is a general failure. Now, her adoptive mother has put her in an internship at a Northern German farm to work with horses, as her last chance to find a balance in life. There she meets Nina, her teacher, a 30-something lesbian, a horse lover, who needs a break from her partner Christine and their city-life. At first, Alex hates being at this remote farm in the middle of nowhere, but she slowly connects with the horses. Then, an upper-class girl, Kathy, arrives at the farm for a vacation with her own beautiful horse. At first Alex dislikes privileged Kathy, but slowly the unlike girls start a friendship. One weekend they’re alone at the farm and things get out of control.
A coming-of-age story with girls and horses in the stark environment at the most Northern tip of Germany at the ocean near the Danish border.

In the presence of Monika Treut.
