Lily Was Here (original title in Dutch: De Kassière, The Cashier) is a 1989 Dutch film directed by Ben Verbong. One song from the soundtrack, performed by Candy Dulfer and Dave Stewart, was later released as a single – "Lily Was Here".
Teenager Lily works as a checkout girl at the local supermarket. She becomes pregnant, but before the child is born, the black father is attacked by guys and killed. Following his death, she flees to the city, where she soon finds herself under the wings of a pimp, Ted. Escaping Ted, she commences a one-woman spree of thefts, culminating in running from the police and the press. In the end, Lily is forced to choose between freedom and her baby.
