Directed by LISA MILLER
After years of indulging in the cosmopolitan high life of Berlin, Toni finds herself broke and in a 20-something crisis. She decides to return to Bubenhausen, the small town she once called home. Saddled with a sullen father and a conservative, prejudiced mother, not to mention a dead-end gig as an intern for a local newspaper, life is anything but a cabaret for Toni. “Hip” is not the word for Bubenhausen, but things look up when the pink-haired Toni is assigned to cover the local Carnival celebration and she reconnects with her childhood friend, the fun-loving, lip-pierced, trombone player, Rosa. These two kindred spirits do their best to shake up humdrum Bubenhausen – but Rosa’s crush on the proudly gender-fluid Toni may or may not be reciprocated – and it might finally be time for her to grow up. Miller’s liberating, raucous comedy was an official entry of the Berlin International Film Festival.
