Marisa, a 20-year-old German girl, hates foreigners, Jews, cops, and everyone she finds guilty for the decline of her country. She provokes, drinks, fights and her next tattoo will be a portrait of Adolf Hitler. The only place she feels home is the Neo-Nazi gang she belongs to, where hate, violence, and heavy parties are the daily rules. When 14-year-old Svenja joins the group, Marisa appears like a role model to her: she fits the purest idea of a combat girl fighting for the group's ideology. But Marisa's convictions will slowly evolve when she accidentally meets a young Afghan refugee. Confronted to him, she will learn that the black and white principles of her gang are not the only way. Will Marisa ever be able to get out of this group? Written by
While working as a cashier and refusing to sell goods to the foreign boy, Marisa's wearing a band-aid over her tattooed swastika. In the next scene, she's wearing a T-Shirt. Cut to the next scene, no T-Shirt, and again, next scene, white T-Shirt again. See more »
The topic of right wing extremists in Germany is a very hot one. The movie tries to stay as real as possible with its depiction of the characters it portrays and the world they are living in. It's not an easy watch and it especially isn't easy to play. Main actress does a fabulous job here.
The morality is clear and that is why the movie does not emphasize on certain things. You'll either like this approach or you'll think it's takes the matter too lightly. Whatever the case don't expect your usual mainstream approach. The movie will not resolve everything or not in a satisfying kind of way. The acting alone is worth watching it of course.
