Bela faces the challenge of establishing a new relationship with her absent mother at a crucial time—when she starts secondary school. This causes her to reflect on the relationships she has taken for granted as well as on the relationships she is re-establishing. For Bela and her friends, the band they form represents freedom and a confession of their world-view. The search for meaning and the creation of the band raises the question of collaboration and independence at the same time. Bela is a heroine who, with her active attitude to life and with the help of her friends and music, successfully overcomes her first major life crisis. A crisis which, in extreme moments, leads her to try drugs and self-harm. Ciao Bela is a musical youth drama about fundamental family relationships, initiation into secondary school, first experiences of love, about finding oneself, about the path to independence and about overcoming the obstacles that life throws up. Ciao Bela is a film about teenagers today, about the problems they face, but above all about their search for self-expression.
