Heute bin ich blond (2013) is a tragicomedy directed by Marc Rothemund, which is based on the autobiographical bestseller "Heute bin ich blond: Das Mädchen mit den neun Perücken" (eng.: "Today I am blonde: The girl with the nine wigs") written by Sophie van der Stap. At the age of 21, fun-loving student Sophie finds out that she is suffering from cancer. Instead of letting the disease rule her life, she decides to enjoy her life the way she would without the disease - going to parties, flirting and having sexual relations. During chemotherapy, she decides to shave her slowly shedding hair and finds comfort in using nine wigs, each of which helps her live out nine different sides of herself. Together with her best friend Annabel, Sophia goes from club to club, falls in love with her long-time friend Rob and writes daily posts on her blog. This way she tries to escape from the dreary and tedious hospital routine and find new courage in life.
