Inhalt

En Garde

Sixteen-year-old Alice was put into a Catholic educational institute for girls by her mother. She is quite different from the other girls: Because of her extreme sense of hearing she perceives the world around her differently from other people and prefers to stay pretty much by herself. In the home she meets Berivan, a Kurdish girl stranded in the same place hoping for a positive judgment from the German immigration authorities. Gradually, Alice opens up to Berivan and they become friends. But the situation between the two begins to dramatically get out of control after Berivan falls in love.
En Garde is a moving story about two girls’ friendship, their hopes and dreams and their favorite game: fencing.
