short in spotlight
Nine-year-old Moni experiences the hard and rough dynamics of a group of adolescents and the
painful process of growing up, while the adult dramas in the family play out in the background.
On weekends, a young family's farmhouse becomes the meeting place of a circle of friends. The
impetuous group of children develops its own, childishly brutal dynamics. Power games and
constant trial of strength drive them forward. Thus, they engage in war games, shoot at each
other, trick each other and make fun of each other. Moni, as the youngest of the group, is at the
bottom of the sociodynamic food chain.
The appeal her older sister's friend and the question of whether her father is really Moin's father
form the ground noise of a weekend that seems to stretch on for an eternity.
A film about the painful beauty of growing up.
