German Age Rating

In a brutal mixture of jealousy, lovesickness, alcohol, pills, cocaine and a whirlwind of beats, Isy passes out. Jonas, whose heart she broke, and his friends use the situation to take advantage of her. Afterwards, Isy can't remember a thing and refuses to involve the police. Jonas's father wants to avoid a scandal at all costs and does whatever he can to sweep the crime under the rug. But what will happen if nothing happens? If there is no punishment? The families face an existential crisis that threatens to tear them apart.
