Två argentinsk-tyska systrar växer ur den värld som dikterats av vuxna. Operation ungdom påbörjas. Dopet för deras nya liv tar plats i hemmets badkar, Madonnan tvättas ren och en grupp flickor från kyrkan dansar för barndomens fall. Den osannolika hjältinnan Madi växer mot ljuset. Att växa upp är bländande ljust.

After graduating high school, German-Argentinian Sophia Mocorrea trained as a media designer for image and sound, over the course of which she produced contributions for television. For her own projects she visited countries such as Paraguay, Bolivia, Peru and especially her second home Argentina. The development of the role of women between cultures, such as the image of reputed outsiders in our society, is the focal point of her works. During her directing studies at the Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf she was awarded with national and international scholarships to aid her cross-cultural research. Alongside writing her first feature film, she is currently finishing up her studies with her diploma short film Brautraub.
