Lola on the Pea
Original title: Lola auf der Erbse
German title: Lola auf der Erbse
Lola is eleven years old and lives with her mother Loretta on an old houseboat by the river. Actually, she could be quite happy if her father had not “vanished into thin air” two years ago. She often dreams that he comes back. She no longer goes to the hairdresser and lets her red hair, which her father liked so much, just grow. She still wears her old sneakers, even though they are all too small. And she sticks a patch on the same place of her neck every day. Her classmates find this strange and steer clear of her. By means of the patch, Lola wants to preserve the last kiss her father gave her before leaving. But veterinarian Kurt causes the headstrong girl the greatest sorrow. He is Loretta’s new partner and a regular guest on the houseboat. Although he seems to be quite nice, Lola refuses to “exchange her father for him”. She more and more withdraws back into herself and becomes a real loner. One day, a new student joins her class. Rebin is very withdrawn too. He does not tell them where he and his parents lived before. Rebin’s family stays illegally in Germany. Therefore, the boy is not to mix with his classmates. Nevertheless, Rebin and Lola make friends, and he finally reveals his secret to her. Unfortunately, Kevin and Thorsten catch the secret too and immediately spread it around ...
