Director: GERNOT KRÄÄ
Eleven year old Paula has everything she wants, but still she writes elaborate fantasies, very secretly, to an imaginary prince in her diary.
Tobi is an admirer from school–hardly her fantasy-type. When Paula’s diary is snatched in a petty crime, Tobi is the only witness. Having no choice but to accept Tobi’s help, Paula befriends him. With a little detective work, they discover Romani street kids responsible for the crime, and follow their lead into a larger plot. Brought out of her sheltered reality, Paula and her new friend are united to rescue more than her diary. Full of adventurous twists, Paula’s Secret has at its center two very charming performances and a fun mix of suspenseful drama and character-driven humor. Recommended for age 9+
