The film criticizes the authoritarian methods of home education in a girls' home. In the course of the action, there is a revolt against the oppressive structures. The plot of the film is often understood as a parable to the social conditions of the time, to which a new, more acute form of class struggle must be opposed. The multi-layered plot plays for 24 hours in a West Berlin girls' home for adolescent girls.
