Seven young women from all walks of life - Alicia (Virginia Roncalli), Xenia (Lisa Eschenbrenner), Sophia (Kionia Winter), Janine (Maren Kraus), Svenja (Hannah Bortz), Alex (Sara Mahle) and Soraya (Lorina Seipp) - have been convicted to do community service ... and thus are tasked with cleaning up a forest, led by over-enthusiastic social worker Petra (Stefanie Borbe), who has issues with her own self esteem but still thinks she can shape young minds by taking them out to mother nature and sing songs around the campfire. Of course, the girls are a bit of an unruly bunch, as not only do they hate the task, there are also mounting tensions in between them. Still, they all want to party, so they put some sleeping pills into Petra's drink, and once she's passed out, the party's on. They're also joined by Max (William Schmidt), a youngster on a "survival trip" who tells them suitably creepy stories about murders that have happened in the very woodlands they're camping in - and the next morning, Petra's found dead, and suddenly things have taken a turn to the darker ...

 

Now this is fun, a film that blends social drama with teen comedy, stoner movie with psycho thriller and everything in between, with the outcome being a darkly humourous flick that works on many levels thanks to clever writing that manages to tie together some very diffuse storylines - and manages to deliver a creepy punchline in a post credits sequence. And of course, an uniformly strong cast helps keeping things together, as does a subtle directorial effort that, despite some craziness, manages to suck the audience into the film rather than freaking them out. In all, a very unusual movie, but well worth a look.
