Isabel’s a ticking time bomb. You never know when and how it will explode. Her single father holds the 17-year-old on a very short leash. The girl tries to escape from togetherness with ever new lovers. When Kai appears and Isabel realizes that he really loves her, she has her first chance to escape the microcosm of father and daughter. But in the end this attempt is doomed to failure. In her tour de force under the sign of fatalism, Isabel doesn’t burn for long – fuel!
