Little Black Spiders

Original title: Little Black Spiders
German title: Little Black Spiders
Belgium, Netherlands, 2012

Director: Toye, Patrice

The summer of 1978 in Belgium. 17-year-old orphan Catherine arrives at a remote home for young girls who are expecting. Some are ashamed, most just want to put the teenage pregnancy behind them and get on with their youth, but Catherine is looking forward to starting a family.

The father, however, is already married and Katharina begins to suspect that it may not be up to her at all, whether she can keep the baby or not. The girls are making close bonds and friendships, and this sisterly solidarity becomes their protection against the harsh reality that awaits them outside.
