Yara, 17, and her family live in the city of Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg. Yara is divided between her work at the supermarket, managing the family home, and her friends. One day, she meets Kiki and falls under the spell of this young rebel.
Kiki didn’t grow up in a family but in a youth center, her daily life is the street.
The two young girls fall in love at first sight. Yara, who grew up in a very conservative family, discovers freedom. And Kiki learns about proximity and belonging to someone else. Both are no longer lonely; their love heals all their wounds from the past.
But Yara’s father can’t find out they’re together. Conservative, he has already chosen a husband for his daughter. Despite their caution, Yara’s family heard about her relationship with Kiki. The two young women had no choice but to flee to Southern France. They run away to live their love like Bonnie & Clyde.
Written by author Maike Rasch and playwright Angelika Mönning, the film “Bonnie & Bonnie” is above all a touching story about two young women who love each other. It is also a story about loyalty to yourself; about not letting others decide your life for you.
