Plot Summary
In this German-language film, four female convicts (Katja Riemann, Jasmin Tabatabai, Nicolette Krebitz, Jutta Hoffmann) form a rock band while incarcerated. When they're given the opportunity to perform at a police ball outside the confines of the prison, they engineer an escape. Once free, they tour across the country, hosting makeshift concerts and narrowly evading capture. When the press catches wind of their escapades, their song becomes a radio hit, launching them to fame.
