A VOLUNTARY YEAR

Ulrich Köhler, Henner Winckler | Germany | 2019 | 86 min
O.V in German subtitled in English and Spanish

Jette is on her way to the airport to spend a year as a volunteer in Costa Rica. Her father Urs is taking her. A trivial stop at her uncle's house changes the course of things, thanks to the delay it is now Jette's boyfriend who’s taking her, to Urs' dissatisfaction. This causes Jette to never catch the plane. But not until we get to know the characters better we’ve gotten to understand what just happened, we'll know that nothing will go as we anticipated, and that this won't be just another teenage runaway.
