In this unconventional coming-of-age story, sexual tension and the conflict between desire and reason drives a wedge between a young woman, her family and community.

Bike-rider Mati and her gang of male friends race around their neighbourhood and drunkenly harass the girls of the village. Mati enjoys her status as one of the boys, but things change when her best friend Sebastian falls for her. The pressure on Mati increases as her family push her to act ‘like a girl’, when she meets Carla, an independent girl who offers Matti a different path. An original and powerful take on the growing pains of young women.

An unfussy, clear-eyed approach to gender and sexual politics – Wendy Ide, Screen International

Festival guest: Katharina Mückstein was born in Vienna. She studied Philosophy and Gender Studies and Directing. She made her feature film debut with Talea (2013).
