Berlin, June 13, 2022 – In For Jojo the deep friendship between Paula (Caro Cult) and Jojo (Nina Gummich) that has lasted for years is put to the test when Jojo suddenly meets the man of her dreams. While she feels like floating on cloud nine, a dark time begins for Paula. She is angry, offended and lonely. Without her longtime soulmate and on her own, she tries to rebuild her life. But scarred by the pain of separation, she eventually stops at nothing to win Jojo back and drive a wedge between the happy couple.
For Jojo is a mix of coming-of-age, wedding-crasher and friendship drama. Stefanie Ren wrote the script for this Netflix movie directed by Barbara Ott. The producer is Alexander Funk from Oberon Film GmbH.
For Jojo celebrates its world premiere on June 24 at the 39th Munich International Film Festival. In addition to the leading actresses Caro Cult and Nina Gummich, director Barbara Ott, producer Alexander Funk and writer Stefanie Ren will also be traveling to the event and will be available for interviews on site.
About For Jojo:
Jojo (Nina Gummich) and Paula (Caro Cult) are inseparable, enjoying their lives to the max as young, single ladies in Berlin. Until Jojo falls head over heels for a man from her hometown and decides to build a future with him… far from Berlin and from Paula, whose world collapses. Driven by fear of separation and loneliness, she does everything she can to stop Jojo, her better half and soulmate, from what might be the biggest mistake of her life – her marriage.
