Spanish premiere

“A film from Berlin. 1999 to 2005. These are children that have just come of age. Vulnerable. Sven, Lena, Thomas, Stephan and Daniela. This is about their lives. The closeness is as intense as the loneliness. We see everything. There are no interviews. There are processes, images, texts, letters, theatre, requests, administrative acts, looks, oaths, pleas. And a letter to me”. Thomas Heise
