Sascha is a 17 year old girl living in Stuttgart, Germany. She carries in her both the stigma of her Russian origins and the trauma of losing her mother, murdered at home by her stepfather. As a way of overcoming the shock, she dreams of writing a book about her mother and taking revenge on her stepfather. When she meets Volker, he invites her to his place, where he lives with his son. A subtle love triangle begins to take shape, which helps Sascha find a way to mature. Adapted from Alina Bronsky’s novel.
