A declaration of love to childhood, about a 10 year old girl's struggle for her place in the local boy's world.

The school holidays have just begun in Brandenburg, but this year Lea isn't going to summer camp – she's starting to find the other girls at her school weird. So instead, she spends much of her time alone, riding her bike through the village and visiting musician and social drop-out Mark on his overgrown farm. One day while out on one of her excursions, Lea spies five boys heaving an oil barrel over the dye factory fence and pedalling off with their booty on a bicycle trailer. Curious, Lea follows the boys at the next opportunity, and discovers they have built a raft on a small lake. But there's a problem: the raft belongs to the gang, and girls are strictly forbidden. Desperate to be admitted to the group, Lea undergoes a test of courage, and from then on the summer seems filled with adventure.

67 mins | Rated G | Drama | Directed by Joya Thome | In German (with English subtitles)
