Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur
Swiss filmmaker Katalin Gödrös makes her feature debut with the German-language drama Mutanten. Paula (Karoline Teska) is a 13-year-old girl who lives with her mother (Barbara Philipp) and despises the idea of spending the summer vacation with her father (Peter Lohmeyer). She concocts a theory that all of humanity is stricken with a mutant virus. In her mind, everyone is infected except the moody 16-year-old Jens (Jakob Matschenz). When he steals a car and goes on the run, Paula goes with him. They encounter 19-year-old Charlotte (Sabine Timoteo) and set out to see the place where Jens' parents were killed.
