Actually, her parents were expecting a tropical virus that caused Paola's mother to feel unwell. Instead, they are now having their third daughter. But the father leaves the family and Paola grows up in a world dominated by women. In search for her own personality, Paola experiences the normal chaos of growing from a girl into a young woman. In her autobiographical graphic novel, the comic artist Powerpaola recounts this formative time in her life - the story of everyday dramas, both big and small, is transferred to the big screen in fast-paced black and white images.

The screening will be followed by a talk with Powerpaola.
