Pia Marais, 2007, 95 min
Stevie, a 14-year-old girl, must cope with the instabilities of her immoderate parents. When they decide to move to a small provincial town, Stevie attempts to slip into a normal middle-class life. She tries to make a good impression in town, spreading stories of grandeur and claiming to be the daughter of a diplomat. But when her parents have once more resorted to illegal means to support their leisurely lifestyle and their hippie friends fill the new home, the chaos continually mounts. In an atmosphere of physical and emotional destruction, Stevie must start to define herself and perhaps even break free.
