No Fear
Filmfest 2009

Thirteen-year-old Becky, her three younger siblings and her mother Corinna live in a high-rise project on the outskirts of town. Becky's best friend Melanie is older and couldn't be more different. Whereas Becky is shy and introverted, Melanie knows just how to play the boys. As the neighborhood tease, she rules the streets. At home, potential fathers have come and gone. Still, Becky’s mother Corinna has hopes that someday Mr. Right will show up: “And then he’ll be our new Papa.” In the meantime, Corinna drowns her sorrows in drink and Becky has to run the household. But she does it willingly. She loves her little brothers and sisters. But when Becky experiences her first big love, the fragile family structure threatens to fall apart. Production Notes
