Lost in the German province and without much support five youngsters form their own little posse and live by their own rules. Katja, Sascha, Benni, Laila and Schöller – they seek each other, they run away from each other. They kiss, they brawl. They love each other. Intimacy and pain go hand in hand. But after this winter, when they graduate from high school, their ways will part. Naked Animals tells of the time in life, when you feel you could conquer the world, when you take the hits without battling an eyelid, because you know there’s somebody there to catch you. And it tells of the pain of saying farewell to all that without knowing what’s next.
