Berlin - Schoenhauser Corner
A group of teenagers, who are sick of the close quarters at home, meet daily at the train tracks on Schoenhauser Street in East Berlin. Tests of courage are the daily routine, and for West German money, they′d be willing to do almost anything.
The construction worker Dieter is looking for freedom on in the streets, Kohle is trying to escape the misery of his constantly drunken step-father, Karl-Heinz has already gotten on the criminal track, and Angela has to leave the house when her mother has a date with her boyfriend. Karl-Heinz tries to win over Dieter and Kohle for his dubious dealings, but when they become involved in an alleged homicide, they both flee to West Berlin, where Kohle is tragically killed in a detainee camp. Dieter escapes the dodgy supervision of the camp and returns home. He wants to account for his guilt in order to start a new life with Angela, who is expecting a child from him.
