Schweben wie Schmetterlinge, stechen wie Bienen

A Film by Jana Bürgelin

Synopsis

These days, everything starts earlier…

Friendships, fights, the period, first love, sex and, above all, dreams. Six girls from three different backgrounds allow us to dive into their worlds for one summer. An episodic film about the synchronicity of life and the end of childhood.
