Drama "in the improvisational style of Andreas Dresen or Mike Leigh" about three drifted apart sisters (Meret Becker, Stephanie Stappenbeck and Heidrun Bartholomäus) finding back together after the death of their mother.
The runaway teenager Joe leaves her dysfunctional mother after being beat by her lover Harry. She meets Engel and his punk friends on the streets and the boy lodges her in the abandoned building where he lives. Engel tells her that he dreams on living in the mountains in a community of his own, raising animals and planting his own food, and they fall in love for each other. When Joe gets pregnant, Engel assumes the baby, but without a profession, the young couple faces serious financial difficulties and problems. When Engel gets addicted on drugs, he drags Joe to a low life including prostitution. But there is light in the mountain. Written by

Better title: "Joe, a young mother fights for love and family"
First of all, this movie is cliche ridden like no other movie i've seen in recent times, second, the cinematography looks extremely (and i cannot overestimate that enough), how can i say, "made for tv", and that's a bad thing. Overall i couldn't enjoy it's good moments, because of the much too high quantity of their "ouch!"-counterparts.
I felt like having watched television after this movie.
