Als sie ihre Tage hat, traut die 15-jäh­ri­ge Ruby sich nicht, ihre Mut­ter nach Tam­pons oder Bin­den zu fra­gen. Sie weiß, dass dafür ein­fach kein Geld da ist. Um nie­man­dem zur Last zu fal­len, ver­sucht sie es selbst zu lösen.

In 2019, Emma Brand­er­horst gra­dua­ted as a direc­tor from the Utrecht School of the Arts. During her stu­dies, she had seve­ral stints as a direc­ting assistant on lar­ger Dutch film pro­duc­tions and work­ed as a cas­ting direc­tor for many years. Emma is enthu­si­a­stic, pas­sio­na­te and fights for what is clo­se to her heart. She is a pro­gres­si­ve femi­nist and is fasci­na­ted by issues such as child­hood and paren­ting, which she looks at from a fema­le perspective.
