Kroko

Kroko
Sabrina Brahmer, Franziska Juenger (photo © LUNA Film 2003)

She’s blond, she’s tough, and she’s untouchable: the femme fatale of Berlin-Wedding’s backstreets. Coolness weighs heavily on Kroko’s eyelids. It could be mistaken for boredom – if it weren’t for the edge in her voice and her ice-cold readiness to walk right over anybody who stands in her way… She’s just as fierce when she’s out to have fun, but one of her joy rides ends in a crash and the juvenile court condemns her to do welfare work in a housing project for disabled people – a preposterous punishment for a girl like her, she thinks. But the “normalos” she lives with aren’t all that thrilling either, and it seems as if Kroko discovers something in the “spasties” she’s been missing in her everyday life...
