Marina, 23, lives with her father in an industrial city on the coast. Keeping her distances with human being that she judges too strange, she prefers listening songs by Suicide, watching animal’s documentaries by Sir David Attenborough and taking sexual education class with her only friend Bella. While a stranger comes into her life, she must prepare to let a father leave it…

Attenberg is about mourning: the one of childhood, certitudes and death, and emancipation in a cruel world all over us. The director has a tender look at these characters; she observes them like Marina watches animals’ observations, of Sir David Attenborough’s documentaries.
