The latest feature from prolific filmmaker Monika Treut (The Virgin Machine, Female Misbehavior, Gendernauts, Ghosted) follows the slow rhythm of farm life in green and lovely Northern Germany. Alex, a troubled teen with an attitude, is sent by her harried mother for a last-ditch internship at a farm, in the care of a horse trainer named Nina. The horse trainer, who is herself retreating from busy city life, takes on her new charge as if dealing with a wild mustang. Holiday guest Kathy arrives with her own horse, and sparks begin to fly. One weekend when Nina goes to the city to see her girlfriend, Kathy and Alex are left to care for the horses. When the cat’s away, the mice will play.
"Treut’s transgressive brand of filmmaking is a much needed intervention into the arena of sexual politics. Her misbehaving women are a vital form of resistance."
