by Marc Rothemund

Based on a bestselling novel translated into 18 languages - Directed by Academy Award nominated Marc Rothemund.The true story of a young woman whose lust for life means she is determined to be so very much more than just another cancer patient.

Sophie has just started her studies when she is diagnosed with cancer: her world is turned upside down. But Sophie is a fighter. She wants to live, with everything that goes with life; dreams, parties, laughing, flirting and having sex. Nine individual wigs become Sophie's elixir of life. Sometimes courageously wild, erotic or romantic, depending on the hair color and style, each wig brings another piece of Sophie to the fore. She escapes from the everyday hospital drudgery, parties wildly with her best girlfriend and falls in love with her buddy Rob. With humor, courage and a portion of lightheartedness, Sophie extends her middle and gives her illness the bird!
