Mati, eighteen years old, likes to wear her hair up, neck shaved, drive a “beefed-up” moped, and hang around with her clique of guys. Things first get complicated for her when the relationship with her best buddy becomes more intense and she meets Carla, a self-determined woman. With Mati, Katharina Mückstein creates a grandiose woman’s character and also questions the traditional gender roles and sexual norms around her. “Doubt. But have no fear. Burn. And don’t give up on yourself.”
