She is small, but dangerous. Wherever Benni Klaass (Helena Zengel) ends up, she is immediately expelled. The wild 9-year-old has already become what child protection services call a “system crasher.” Benni has a single goal - to be back at home with her mom - but Bianca Klaass (Lisa Hagmeister) is scared of her own daughter. Hoping to find a permanent placement for Benni, anger-management trainer Micha (Albrecht Schuch) becomes the girl’s school escort and suddenly there is a seed of hope. Will Micha be able to succeed where all others failed?

In German with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
