Wild Chicks in Love

Love sure is a tough nut to crack, and Sprotte, Frieda, Melanie, Wilma and Trude can tell you a thing or two about it. All the "wild chicks" are struggling with it, almost as in A Midsummer Night's Dream, which they're staging with their teacher Rose. Melanie is deeply hurt since Willi has left her for another girl, Nana, who's two years older than him. Frieda has a complicated weekend relationship with Maik, whom she met at riding camp. Trude dreams of fellow student Ricky's smoldering gaze. And Sprotte is still seeing Fred. In fact, everything would be great between them if it weren't for Sprotte's jealousy. The wild chicks' leader also has another problem to cope with: her mother Sybille is planning to marry the smart alec Thorben when Sprotte's father suddenly turns up after twelve years and sets Sybille's heart all aflutter... But the most difficult relation of all has to be Wilma's. Love, as the chicks come to realize, doesn't always have to do with boys. In spite of all the emotional turmoil, the clique manages to stick together – which is just what you'd expect from these wild chicks!

Romance holds center stage in the sequel to the smash teen hit Wild Chicks! From the producer of Bibi Blocksberg, Emil and Detectives, The Flying Classroom, Annaluise and Anton. Featuring Benno Fuermann (Merry Christmas), Jessica Schwarz (The Red Cockatoo) and Veronica Ferres (Schtonk!), this cheeky teenager comedy is based upon the international bestseller by Cornelia Funke (Inkheart, The Thief Lord).
