Paula is in love with her classmate Charlotte. Her best friend Katherin says Charlotte’s feelings are mutual. But every time Paula tries to make a move, Charlotte’s studious older boyfriend Michael becomes an obstacle. When Lilli, the self-indulgent and reckless class rebel shows an interest in her instead Paula can’t help but be swept up by her fun-filled, sexually promiscuous lifestyle. But it comes at the cost of alienating close friends and perhaps losing her one chance to be with Charlotte. The pain and heartache of young love is achingly laid bare in Monja Art’s hugely accomplished first narrative feature. In this nuanced and realistic portrait of teenage life, everyone wants someone other than the person they’re with. It’s a place where girls like girls who like boys and no-one seems to care – a time when being 17 and in love is all that matters.
