German title: Tigermilch
This summer it is supposed to happen: their first time! The two 14-year-old friends Nini and Jameelah decide this at the end of the school year. The two girls live in a tower block housing estate in Berlin and have known each other since they were four years old. While Nini feels neglected by her overweight, depressed mother, Jameelah, who comes from Iraq, is worrying about her future. For soon a decision will be taken on her and her mother’s naturalisation. But now the holidays have just begun and they want to enjoy them! Equipped with their special drink, “tiger milk”, i.e. a cocktail of passion fruit juice, Mariacron brandy and milk, the two Berliners paint the town red, go to the swimming pool with Nini’s best friend Amir, a Bosnian boy, and flirt with Lukas and Nico. When their “summer project” goes wrong at a wild party in a Grunewald villa, the girls stage some “love magic” at the playground in their neighbourhood at night, where they unintentionally witness an honour killing. Amir's brother Tarik is involved, so the girlfriends have to take a tough decision.
