Die Blindgänger

Deutschland 2003/2004 Spielfilm

Summary

The Blind Flyers

Marie and Inga, both 13, have been best friends for a long time. Like all girls their age, they share the same problems: boys, their looks, the teachers. They do not differ from other teenagers except in one way: they are blind. They live in a boarding school for the blind and they love music. When they hear that a school band is recruiting extras for a TV contest, they get carried away. The others agree at the audition that the girls are talented but their blindness is not a media asset.

Then Marie’s life suddenly takes a new turn when she helps a young Russian émigré to hide from the police. Herbert wants to return to his homeland, against his father′s wish, but needs money for his ticket. Inga comes up with the idea that the three play music on the streets: "The Blind Flyers" are a success and make money but their luck is short-lived.
