Synopsis:
Lilith, the pubescent daughter of the devil himself, is tired of only tormenting her private teacher in hell. She wants to go out into the world, feel action and prove that she can be really evil. Resignedly, her father gives in. However, Lilith is only allowed to stay among humans for one week. And her father determines the place and the person who she has to make do evil voluntarily. A devilish ruse, as Lilith finds herself staying with the nice eco-minded Birnstein family in the tranquil village of Birkenbrunn. Their eldest daughter, amiable and always helpful Greta, who sings in the church choir, gladly wears her mother’s knitted dresses, is Lilith’s target. The young she-devil joins Greta’s class as a guest student, picks a quarrel with top dog Eddie the very first day, and feels strangely attracted by outsider Samuel, who wants to abscond to Berlin soon. And she discovers that inconspicuous Greta, who is ridiculed by her classmates, is in love with womanizer Carlo. Well, wouldn’t this be a suitable starting point for orchestrating a very evil plan?
