Jasmin, 14, finds it hard to get on with her foster family: more than ever, she misses her relationship with her mother. Only recently released on parole and before Jasmin’s insistence, her mother accepts to spend a few days with her in the countryside. Step by step, mother and daughter learn to know each other: first night out, first cigarette… feverish steps that fill the gap made by years of separation. However, her mother’s attraction for a man threatens to ruin this long-awaited reunion.
Born in Vienna in 1982, she leaves Austria aged 18 to work on film shooting in Hamburg. She then studies Philosophy in Austria and in Germany and works at the Volkstheater in Vienna. From 2004 to 2010, she attends classes on stage direction given by Michael Haneke in Vienna’s Filmakademie, before co-creating La Banda Film, a work collective and a production society. Talea is her first full-length feature film.
