A Voluntary Year

Jette (Maj-Britt Klenke), a recent high-school graduate, is on her way to the airport to start a year of volunteer work in Central America. Her overbearing father Urs (Sebastian Rudolph) wants her to lead a free, self-determined life and not to get stuck in the West German province like he did.

But Jette is torn between her boyfriend Mario (Thomas Schubert) and her father’s expectations. In this captivating domestic comingof- age story, Jette must realise what she wants for herself and learn to fight for her independence.
