Synopsis Charleen is about to turn sixteen and sees everything black, black, black. Kurt Cobain fan, pessimistic and obsessed with death, one day she gets fed up and decides to end it all. Luckily, she fails. But from that moment on, things start to change. A worried mother, a best friend who doesn’t understand her, a psychotherapist who looks like a dangerous lunatic, a rocker father that abandons her, a class full of idiots, the school freak who falls for her and maybe is not as much of a freak as it seems ... Everything seems to plot to wean Charleen’s teen angst, to show her that life is worth living ... and may even be more fun than death. Amazing debut feature from director Mark Monheim, hailed in his country as the teen comedy of the year.

Suggested age: +14
Director bio Born in Bonn in 1977, Mark Monheim became interested from a very young age in photography, writing and rock music.

He studied documentary filmmaking at the University of Television and Film Munich and in those years worked on big productions in various capacities (doing stills, as assistant director or set manager, etc.). He graduated in 2008 and since then has worked as a free-lance writer. He currently lives in Berlin, is married and has two children.
