Brief synopsis

"Maria" ist das Portrait einer Frau, die am Rand unserer Produktions- und Konsumgesellschaft lebt, sich jedoch nicht auf die ihr zugeschriebene Opferrolle reduzieren läßt. Furchtlos, fordernd und ungemein entschlossen, verfolgt sie ihren Traum vom eigenen Friseursalon. (http://dfff-ffa.de/)
