Synopsis

Susanne (17) and Robert (18) want to get married, but because Susanne is still under-aged, she needs parental permission. With twin babies and tight finances, the newlyweds soon feel overwhelmed, and dealing with everything makes them forget the love that originally brought them together.

 

In this sequel to his box-office hit Seven Freckles (1978), director Zschoche skillfully captures the life and problems of young East Germans in the late 1980s.
