Fortune Favors the Brave
(Ente Gut! Mädchen allein zu Haus)
In German & Vietnamese with Finnish subtitles
For audiences aged 7 and above
|'Eleven-year-old Linh shows great grace under pressure. When her mother, who's raising her kids on her own, has to return unexpectedly to Vietnam, Linh looks after her little sister Tien and the family restaurant on her own. Of course, no one is supposed to find out, not the school, not the neighbours, and definitely not child protective services. But Linh's biggest problem has red hair, a telescope and a sly grin: Pauline. The daredevil from across the street has the whole neighbourhood under surveillance and can't imagine anything cooler than a life without parents. When Pauline blackmails the Vietnamese sisters into starting a gang with her, the three girls set off on a daring adventure.'
