And There We Are, In The Middle
Andi plays electric guitar and is a gun nut. Michi hopes to be on the right side with his Doc Martens. Ramona is looking for an apprenticeship and wants a lip piercing. The three 15-year-olds live in Ebensee, a small town in Upper Austria, where in 2009 teenagers disrupted the annual ceremony commemorating the dead of the former concentration camp with softguns. The film accompanies its three protagonists for a year and paints a concise picture of the complicated process of adolescent self-discovery and personality formation. And of how short the path can be when changing from one identity to another.
