Filmfest 2019

German Age Rating

Art student Izzy is nearing the end of her first year in college. It's her last chance to lose her virginity before spending an uneventful summer with her grandparents. The right opportunity seems to present itself at a "Crush Party". The problem is that the only people who are invited are those who've been designated someone's crush on Instagram. It's high time for Izzy and her two best friends to think up a plan.
