Nora, a shy 14-year-old girl from Berlin, will never forget this record-hot summer. Like a caterpillar, she emerges from her cocoon to become a confident and strong butterfly, ready to spread her wings and fly into adulthood. The film captures Nora’s journey as she falls in love with another girl, learns to stand up for herself, and discovers the hardships of first love.

Fueled by a dazzling soundtrack, COCOON is an intimate and insightful coming-of-age story, reminiscent of those idyllic and lasting summers of change.
