The Ordinaries

Sophie Linnenbaum

The world is separated into leading and supporting roles and people with film defects are persecuted and excluded. The 16-year-old Paula gets the chance to be promoted from supporting character to leading character. A critical test is about to start. Only the problem is: she is not able to compose a vivid soundtrack, which is a basic condition for leading roles. Paula is looking for a solution and finds the exiled Outtakes to whom she is more connected than she suspects.

Part of the series „Was tut sich — im deutschen Film“ by DDF and epd Film.
