Ursula Meier won the Silver Bear in the 2012  Berlin International Film Festival with the movie Sister, L’enfant d’en Haut, being it’s Swiss original name.

Simon lives with his older sister, close to a ski resort in the Swiss Alps. His sister switching jobs and relations, Simon has to become responsible for the day by day life, so he finds a rather unsafe occupation. He goes up to the ski resort and steals skis and other ski equipment and sells it to make a living.

It’s a movie about family drama, about young people trying to find an identity and living with each other, about doing a bad thing and starting to like it.
