The self-confident and lively German-Persian Nico loves her job as a geriatric nurse and is popular with everyone because of her easy-going and sympathetic manner. She enjoys the Berlin summer with her best friend Rosa until a racist attack suddenly tears her out of her carefree everyday life.

MUBI's take

Eline Gehring’s spirited and moving debut deals a feisty blow to racist intolerance, one high kick at a time! Reminiscent of The Karate Kid, inspirational training sequences are also paired with the sweetness of a queer romance, both of which creating a powerful shield against xenophobic abuse.
