Spring 1995 - after the closure of the Needle Park and the public drug scene in Zurich, eleven-year-old Mia and her heroin addicted mother Sandrine are relocated to the countryside. While caring for her mother, Mia spends time with her imaginary friend and a gang of local teenage misfits. These friendships finally give her the strength to rebel and break free from her abusive mother.

  • A strong and important film. by 10

    The unbelievable story, which makes you sad and angry in equal parts, was perfectly staged here. The sets are super authentic and the 90s were captured nicely. The make-up, which shows the decay of Sandrine, is depicted as realistically as possible.

    Camera, editing, music and the acting are just great. And in my opinion, Luna Mwezi and Sarah Spale deliver the best acting performance so far in the entire history of Swiss film.

    A strong and important film.
