On her wild quest for love, 9-year-old Benni’s untamed energy drives everyone around her to despair.
She is small, but dangerous. Wherever Benni ends up, she is immediately expelled.
The wild 9-year-old girl has already become what child protection services call a “system crasher”. Profoundly affected by childhood trauma, Benni is by turns bright, funny and charming, but can flip at any moment into terrifying violent outbursts.
Mrs. Bafané from child protection services is trying her best to find a permanent placement for Benni, to little success. She hires the anger management trainer Micha as Benni’s school escort and suddenly there is a seed of hope.
Will Micha be able to succeed where all others despaired?
Director: Nora Fingscheidt Running Time: 120 min Language German (English subtitles)
