A teen girl in 1970's Berlin becomes addicted to heroin. Everything in her life slowly begins to distort and disappear as she befriends a small crew of junkies and falls in love with a drug-abusing male prostitute.
For two weeks, 20 male participants are hired to play prisoners and guards in a prison. The "prisoners" have to follow seemingly mild rules, and the "guards" are told to retain order without using physical violence.
The runaway teenager Joe leaves her dysfunctional mother after being beaten by her lover Harry. She meets Engel and his punk friends on the streets and the boy shelters her in the abandoned building where he lives. Engel tells Joe that he dreams of living in the mountains in a community of his own, raising animals and planting his own food, and they fall in love with each other. When Joe gets pregnant, the young couple face serious problems because of their unemployment & homelessness. When Engel then gets addicted to drugs, he drags Joe down with him to a life that includes prostitution, but ultimately there is a light at the end of the tunnel for them.Written by

Absolutely fantastic film, wonderful direction, absolutely ridiculously great soundtrack, and incredable acting, This film really shows love at its largest and really captures the essence of Colognes underground life, with young actors such as Pallaske and Stadlober the script could not of been better performed and these 2 seem to have a very bright and positive future in german film ahead of them! Wonderful! A must see for any German Speaker!
