Maria von Heland makes her feature-length directorial debut with the teen drama Grosse Mädchen Weinen Nicht (Big Girls Don't Cry). Set in Berlin, where traditional and poor Kati (Anna Maria Muhe) is best friends with liberal and wealthy Steffi (Karoline Herfurth). When they spot Steffi's father, Hans (Stefan Kurt), kissing another woman (Teresa Harder), the two girls plan a scheme of revenge. They make friends with the other woman's daughter, Tessa (Josefine Domes), only to set her up in a dangerous situation with a pornographer (Dieter Laser). As Steffi begins to experiment with drugs and sex, her friendship with Kati becomes increasingly strained.
