Jellyfish / Jellyfish
Fifteen-year-old Sarah Taylor struggles to keep the family together. Irresponsible mother suffering from depression, prematurely grown up siblings, social welfare services wanting to place her younger brother in a foster family, the lack of funds to support the basic needs – Sarah has a long list of troubles she has to deal with. The girl tries to keep on studying and working at the same time, but faced with a dramatic financial situation, in despair, she decides to prostitute herself. Encouraged by a charismatic teacher, Sarah slowly takes an interest in stand-up, which turns out to be a great valve for her frustration and sarcastic sense of humor. A bitter and honest story, told in realistic, vulgar language, which despite the shocking situation of the heroine, eventually gives hope and grounds for optimism.
