Marjane moves into a communal apartment with eight homosexuals.
She has abandoned her punk look, too.
One day, she is overjoyed to discover that her mother is coming to visit.
When she picks Mom up at the airport, Mom doesn't recognize her because Marjane has grown so much.
They do a lot of quality bonding.
Mom is still there when Marjane's lease at the communal apartment is up, so she helps Marjane find a new place, this time a room in the house of one Frau Doctor Heller. We're not sure if this is an upgrade from staying at Frau Blucher's castle or not.
When Mom leaves, Marjane feels rejuvenated from all the maternal affection she's received.
