The summer in Berlin is hotter than usually. Nora is a quiet and reserved teenager, who lives alone with her mother and older sister. With the latter, she spends most of her days at school, on the roofs of the overheated apartments and at the swimming pool. It is at the pool that she first sees Romy… It is clear that the summer will bring many transformations and changes for Nora: her first period, first kiss, relationships and disappointments. Nora is getting to know herself and the people around her. Full of courageous and pleasant summer scintillation, the film shows the troubles and joys of looking for your place among your peers, in society and the world.
