A film about five thirteen-year-old street children who have had to grow up too soon, shot in Berlin during Christmas 1992.
Claudia wants to show her mother "that kids can do what they want." Danny thinks Germany stinks, having lived on the streets for two years. His mother doesn’t try to contact him any more. Jonas, who spends some time at his parents' house but feels most at home in a street riot, is convinced that a bright future lies ahead of him. Daniela, who is living in a women's refuge center, doesn’t want to leave home despite suffering at the violent hands of her father. David shows his father, the director, first-hand what street children go through and the pain they inflict upon their parents.
