The parents of students from class 6A attend a crisis parent meeting to solve an urgent problem. The only students present are three 12-year-old girls – Denise, Bella, and Mina. They have been accused of bullying, but they vehemently reject these accusations. Blinded by the urge to save their children, the angry parents throw accusations at each other, unveiling the ugly side of human nature. Soon it also becomes clear that the teacher might not have done enough to defuse tensions in the classroom. The film tackles questions of responsibility of adult society towards children, shortcomings of the education system, lack of authority, and importance of mutual understanding. It premiered at the Berlin IFF.
