The young woman Sin is addicted to heroin and wants to get clean. Her plan is to fly to a Greek island where she will give up drugs. The directorial debut SIN & ILLY STILL ALIVE by Maria Hengge is a gritty, realistic portrait of drug addiction, “A Christiane F. for the 21st century.” (Claus Löser, Berliner Zeitung). The young woman Sin is addicted to heroin and wants to get clean. Her plan is to leave gray, cold Frankfurt and fly to a Greek island where she will give up drugs. Sin sells blank prescriptions that she stole from her father's medical practice to get the money she needs for the flights. Sin separates from her boyfriend Leon and tries to win her friend, the young prostitute Illy, to go with her. Illy recently lost her pimp, Mesuth. However, the two girls don't get very far.
