Kinokulture are pleased to be partnering with Pecadillo Pictures on the virtual release of Cocoon from 11th December.
In the heat of a shimmering Berlin summer, Nora spends her days as a third wheel to her older sister Jule and her best friend Aylin. They think and talk only of boys and how to keep thin, whilst wandering the vibrant city streets taking selfies and juvenile social media videos. Feeling the pressures to fit in, Nora goes along with her sister's frolics - drinking, smoking and playing 'smack the finger' with the boys. But with their alcoholic mother largely absent, it is Jule who bears the brunt of Nora's supervision. Nora looks up to Jule but still keeps and cares for caterpillars, an activity she and her mother once shared.
On a gym day at school, Nora gets her period for the first time in front of the class - one embarrassing step too far for Jule. When older student Romy rushes to Nora's rescue, a friendship blossoms and Nora falls fast in love for the first time. But as the hottest summer on record comes to a close, things will never be the same for Nora - the butterfly has emerged from her cocoon.
A true depiction of the trials and triumphs of female adolescence, Cocoon is a raw and honest coming-of-age tale that every woman can relate to.
