Nora, a shy 14-year-old Berlin girl, will never forget this way too hot summer. Surrounded by people with disrupted biographies, from different cultures and backgrounds, she makes her way into adulthood. Nora gets her first period, falls in love with another girl, learns to stand up for herself and gets her heart broken for the first time. When summer ends, things will never be the same again for Nora.
Coming of age in an unexpectedly hot summer in Berlin. Tears with new friends, fresh and effervescent love and lots of joy. The sensitive and tender story of a Nora who in 2020 is no longer, nor wants to be, Ibsen’s Nora in A Doll’s House although they share the name. Fantastic explosion of this flower bud that will become a dazzling flower.
