Content of the film:
As different as the protagonists are, one theme unites them all: Each and every one of them experienced depression in childhood or adolescence and had to find a way to deal with the illness. The film offers very personal insights into the emotional world of those affected, answers the question “What can help adolescents and young adults deal with their illness?” and sends three important messages: Depression can affect anyone, depression is treatable, and: “You are not alone”.
After the film , there will be an opportunity for an exchange with the chairwoman of the German Depression League Waltraud Rinke and DDL member Katja Luik.
