2015 | Director: Petra Clever

Lucca is in the middle of her A-level exams, heading for a career as a high-flying lawyer when she is mistakenly accused of criminal damage and sentenced to community service in a hospice.

There she meets Valerie who is determined to carry out the last wishes of her friend Herma, despite Herma’s son who is only interested in his inheritance.

Lucca helps Valerie to kidnap Herma’s ashes and they begin a journey which turns Lucca’s ideas and values upside down.
