Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 04/2018

After working as a writer and director for television – including 10 episodes of VOX's award-winning audience favorite RED BRACELETS (CLUB DER ROTEN BÄNDER) based on the Catalan drama series POLSERES VERMELLES – Felix Binder has now made his directorial debut for the cinema which is inspired by the hit format.

The screenplay by Arne Nolting and Jan Martin Scharf takes the fans of RED BRACELETS back to a time before the series' lead characters – teenagers Leo, Jonas, Emma, Alex, Toni and Hugo – had arrived in the hospital's pediatric ward and formed a club simply to survive and charts the first signs of a strong friendship against all odds.
