Everything is going wrong in 18-year-old Joanna's life right now: she has run out of ADHD pills and is desperately trying to raise money for new ones. She is bullied at school and her depressive father won't get up from the couch - not even to visit her mother's grave. Against the growing storm in her head, she goes swimming - even without paying admission. There she meets Audrey - and everything changes. The film accompanies Joanna through her complicated life, showing situational comedy, but also depth, without ever becoming pathetic. This is mainly due to Niki Hanseblad, the charismatic actress who plays Joanna, who radiates a sense of combative optimism.

Age rating: from 12 years
