Big Girls Don′t Cry
What does it mean to be seventeen and to have a best friend? It means you spend almost every waking moment with each other, talk all day and night about your favorite topics (love, boys, and sex), and you share fears, desires, joys and pain.
Kati is seventeen. Her relationships never turn out as she hopes for - many affairs, but not really a true boyfriend, and her parents are trying to get a grip on things on the home front, but just cannot seem to manage. Steffi, Kati′s best friend, seems to have the perfect life. She′s pretty, has a sweet boyfriend and an open and functional relationship to her parents - or so it seems.
But Kati and Steffi′s friendship is put to the test. Kati witnesses her friend′s life fall apart, as Steffi finds out by chance that her father is having an affair. In their despair, the two girls try to find out more about this woman and happen to then meet her daughter, Tessa. Steffi focuses all her hate on Tessa, and Kati has to decide how far her loyalties will take her. The situation gets out of control, but big girls don′t cry...
