The Ordinaries

Feature film, DE, 2022, R: Sophie Linnenbaum, 120 min 

Paula wants a glamorous life with her own storyline, exciting scenes and full of music – not like her mother, who works as a supporting character in the background. Investigations lead them to the despised, repressed outtakes, flawed people on the fringes of society. Paula begins to doubt herself, her place in the story and those who are telling it.
