Jens Geiger, curator of the sections »Veto!« and »Asia Express«:

Loïs wants nothing more than to become an astronaut. The 16-year-old has a talent in physics, but also a problem: she weighs over 100 kilos. When her dream finally threatens to burst, she meets Amélie, Stannah and Justine in a clinic. The three teenage girls also struggle with their lives, but are prepared to do anything to fly into space with Loïs. The girls take us on a road trip through their emotional world and show us how they courageously pursue their dreams and live out their freedom despite restrictions. Director Marie-Sophie Chambon shows in her film the difficulties in the young lives of the four teenage girls and moves with pleasant ease and always at eye level with their protagonists. The focus is on one thing above all: the support that friendship can give.
