Carla Nowak (LEONIE BENESCH) is a dedicated, idealistic young teacher in her first job at a German middle school. Her relaxed rapport with her seventh-grade students is put under stress when a series of thefts occur at the school, and a staff investigation leads to accusations and mistrust among outraged parents, opinionated colleagues, and angry students.

Caught in the middle of these complex dynamics, Carla tries to mediate—but the more she tries to do everything right, the more desperate her position becomes.

This film won five awards at the 2023 German Film Awards, including Best Fiction Film. It was chosen to represent Germany at the 96th Academy Awards 2024, and has been shortlisted for Best International Feature Film.
