14-year-old Nola has body issues and shuts herself off more and more while her older sister goes out on the town. This changes when Nola falls for the new girl in class.


14-year-old Nora (Lena Urzendowsky) lives in a high rise apartment on Kottbusser Tor in Berlin. The quiet girl breeds caterpillars in her room and is the hanger-on of her slightly older sister Jule (Lena Klenke). The mother reads Judith Butler at night and spends her day in bed. The fridge is usually empty and the freedom the teens enjoy seems limitless. They hang out in shisha bars, smoke joints, and film prank videos. Julie and her best friend feed themselves with cotton balls that they dunk in orange juice. For them it‘s all about looking good and boys. For Nora, her own body is a site filled with pain and shame. First, a boy breaks her hand while they play a game. Then Nora gets her first period in a mixed PE class – for everyone to see. She gets educated about tampons via YouTube tutorials and becomes even more withdrawn until Romy (Jella Haase) comes, the new girl in school, and Nora falls for her.
