***EMDER SCRIPT AWARD 2021***
Nothing would be further from the mind of the young, rebellious Romni Valentina than to get married. But when her beloved sister Jasmina goes to Germany with her husband Robby and her family in Macedonia finds themselves in an emergency situation, a wedding seems the only way out. In desperation, Valentina snatches up a longtime suitor – but still can’t comply on her wedding night. Instead, with the help of her German friend Lana, she flees to her sister’s home in Wuppertal, where her sudden appearance endangers her already fragile stay. When Jasmina finally demands that she goes back to her husband in Macedonia, Valentina must choose between her family and a self-determined life.
