For over a year, the film team accompanied an eighth grade class and interviewed the students about their first romantic relationships as well as their relationships to parents and teachers. The young people's comments are accompanied by scenes of their daily lives and songs written by director Konrad Weiß. The resulting documentary is a sensitive, emotional, and humorous portrait of early adolesence that also provides information and advice for teenagers.
