System Crasher

Information in English

She is small, but dangerous. Wherever Benni ends up, she is expelled immediately.  The wild 9-year-old girl has already become what child protection services call a “system crasher”, and she is certainly not looking to change her ways.

Because Benni has one single goal: to be back at home with her mommy! But Bianca is scared of her own daughter while Mrs. Bafané from child protection services is trying her best to find a permanent placement for Benni. She enlists anger management trainer Micha as Benni’s school escort; and suddenly there is a glimpse of hope. Will Micha be able to succeed where all others have failed?

While being acutely authentic, first-time director Nora Fingscheidt creates a psychological study in vibrant, visceral and emotional cinema that evokes unforgettable performances.
