What does growing up mean these days? Everything has changed, we are freer, more relaxed and can deal with topics like puberty and sexuality in a totally relaxed way. Or can’t we? Are parents today still uncomprehending spoilsports and the children still hormone-controlled monsters?

THE BEAUTIFUL MINDS explores with young fugitives, locals and adults the best and at the same time the worst time of our lives: our spring awakening. It’s about the urgent questions of our youth, which were already taken up in a similar way in Wedekind’s classic over a hundred years ago. What about the first kiss and the first time? Can I ask my parents something like that, or do I learn about these issues on YouTube? Together with the participants  THE BEAUTIFUL MINDS goes to the prom for one evening and takes the audience on a journey through the turmoil of love, questions of sexuality and farewell to youth.
