Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 03/2017

Twenty-seven-year-old slam poet Mia is celebrated for her spontaneous and unpredictable talent. When she lands a dubbing job in a Japanese animated series she merges more and more with the role of the blue-haired Kimiko. Suddenly, Mia can see electricity, leap from roofs and save people's lives. But as Mia's superpowers grow, so does her awareness of looming danger. Just as in the Kimiko anime, hostile powers are planning to destroy the city, maybe even all of humanity. Only Mia can save the day. But who is really in danger here?
