Filmmaker Rüdiger Stein begins a new project: filming Klaus and Manuela, young expectant parents, for a documentary on "Starting a Family." As the project threatens to fall apart, Rüdiger becomes personally involved in this family-to-be when, after the death of Klaus's father, Rüdiger steps in as his guardian. Thanks to his experiences with Klaus and Manuela, Rüdiger is able to face his work and his life with open eyes.
Released in 1990, this is one of the last DEFA films.
