Foster families, children’s communes, special schools: Anywhere Benni goes, she is being kicked out. She is wild, loud and unpredictable. To the youth welfare office, the nine-year-old constitutes, what is referred to as a “system crasher”. All Benni wants is love, security and to move back in with her mother. But Benni’s mother Bianca is frightened by her young daughter’s temper.
As there seems to be no more place for Benni to go to, anti-violence coach Micha tries to free her from the spiral of anger and aggression.
