Of Girls And Horses / Von Mädchen und Pferden

International Feature Film Competition

Sixteen-year-old Alex is sent by her stepmother to a remote ranch on the Baltic seaside in the hopes that the young girl will calm down, quit drugs, and her self-inflicted scars will heal. Alex hates the place from the very start – she doesn't give a damn about horses, and the vast plains and muddy marshes surrounding the farm seem never-ending to her. Gradually, under the guidance and help of Nina, who came to the farm to think about the relationship with her long-term partner, she starts to discover not only the beauty of riding, but also the nature that surrounds her. Everything goes swimmingly until the day a third girl appears at the farm – a redhead from a good family who is the complete opposite of Alex. Malice and disdain between the two girls slowly turns into affection and friendship, and then one weekend, they end up alone at the farm... Female jealousy, love, and the desire for freedom against the backdrop of natural scenery mark the latest film of legendary director Monika Treut.
