Written by author Maike Rasch and playwright Angelika Mönning, the film “Bonnie & Bonnie” is first and foremost the moving story of two young women who love each other. It’s also a story of loyalty to oneself, of not letting others decide your life for you.
Yara (Emma Drogunova) is 17 years old and lives with her family in the city of Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg. Yara divides her life between her work at the supermarket, managing the family home, and her friends. One day, she meets Kiki (Sarah Mahita), who live in a youth center and falls under the spell of this young rebel.
Yara discovers freedom after growing up in a conservative family. Kiki learns about closeness and belonging to someone else. Both are no longer alone, their love heals all their past wounds.
But all is not going to be well. Yara’s father has already chosen a husband for his daughter. Despite their discretion, Yara’s family finds out about her relationship with Kiki.
The two young women have no choice but to flee to Southern France. They run away to live their love like Bonnie & Clyde.
