Princess (Prinzessin)

Scene from "Princess" (photo © Colonia Media Filmproduktions GmbH/Label 131)

A girl gang roams their territory in a typical German suburb - between cheap apartment blocks and discount markets. If they feel like it they'll smack your face. Yvonne has gotten into so many fights - tomorrow she has to go to prison. But when she refuses to turn up there, her best friedn, the Russian-German Katharina, distances herself from Yvonne and the gang starts to fall apart. Things escalate in a horrible fashion and one of them has to make a sacrifice. A love story without sex.
