Inhalt

Pool of Princesses

A film about three teenagers – Klara, Mina and Tanutscha – from the Berlin district of Kreuzberg. The trio have known each other since Kindergarten and have plenty in common. The three 15-year-olds are the best of friends; they are spending the summer at Prinzenbad, a large open-air swimming pool at the heart of the district where they live. They′re feeling pretty grown up, and are convinced they′ve now left their childhood behind. Yet when it comes to their personal development and family backgrounds, the lives of these three young girls couldn′t be more different.

"Prinzessinnenbad" is a film about their search for love and for something to hold on to. It is also about how these girls use their friendships to make up for everything that is so painfully absent from their lives at home. Their mixture of unadulterated charm and gruff, precocious manner somehow help Klara, Mina and Tanutscha to win respect as they find a way to cut their own path through life.
