Eighteen-year-old Helen (Carla Juri) likes to experiment. Especially with sex. And in the area of hygiene, she has quite a few of her own curious theories as well. Those around her are often shocked by her openness and the things she says which a lady should never let slip from her mouth. But that’s just the way Helen is. She and her friend and “blood-sister” Corinna take joy in breaking one societal taboo after another – until the day Helen ends up in the hospital after a dicey incident while shaving her intimate areas. But even in her hospital bed, she continues her own rough journey to come to terms with the more painful parts of growing up, all the while secretly hoping to bring her divorced parents back together. She finds an ally in her nurse (Christoph Letkowski) who is absolutely disarmed by her straightforwardness. Wetlands has captured the most secret aspects of the female world with all its idiosyncrasies and hidden yearnings and laid it bare with never before seen openness and humor. The 2013 German film hit is based on a bestselling novel of the same name.
