An open look at the cruelty of adolescence in all its forms.
The very embodiment of the shadowy face of puberty, a teenage boy winds up in a special re-education program after beating a classmate with an iron rod. Inside, he meets the young rebel, Shirley, who was brought there for bludgeoning a girl with a stone. But budding affection between the two youngsters diverts their destructive course towards a better future. This motion picture by Donata Rotunnoa was Luxembourg’s official candidate for nomination to the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film.
