When her father's assistant Meinert (Rasp) rapes her, nine months later she gives birth to a child. Thymiane refuses to marry Meinert and is then sent away to a reform school, where she plots her escape. She befriends Erika (Edith Meinhard), who plans the method by which the girls will regain their freedom. With the help of an old friend of her father, Thymiane is able to escape the school with her baby, but not all goes as planned. Diary of a Los Girl follows Thymiane as she struggles to make her way in a world that has taken advantage of her time and time again.moreless
