Combat Girls
Filmfest 2011

COMBAT GIRLS Marisa, a 20-year-old German girl, hates foreigners, Jews, cops, and everyone she blames for the decline of her country. She, drinks, fights and loves to be provocative. Her next tattoo will be a portrait of Adolf Hitler. The only place she feels at home is the neo-Nazi gang she belongs to, where hate, violence, and heavy drinking are the order of the day. When 14-year-old Svenja joins the gang, Marisa is like a role model to her. Marisa embodies the pure idea of a 'combat girl', fighting against the world, defending the group's ideology. But Marisa's neo-Nazi convictions are challenged when she accidentally meets a young Afghan refugee. Confronted by him, she learns that the simplistic black and white principles of her gang are not the only way. But now, in so deep, will Marisa ever be able to leave the group behind?
