KAUGUMMIBLASE

A Film by Anja Gurres

Synopsis

BUBBLE GUMMED GIRL
Emma is addicted to chewing gums. She reaches puberty but is still in denial about it. She’d love nothing better than to swing with her childhood friend Lasse, to play with her father’s toy train and to chew gum the whole day – just nothing should change. But Lasse suddenly has a girl friend and is interested in sex. But not just Lasse changed. Emma’s parents want to dismantle the toy train world. They say she’s to old for that now. But what has that got to do with anything? Does Emma win Lasse over or does she has to leave her childish bubble gum world forever?
