16 year old school student Petra (Katja Bienert) is madly in love with her classmate Mick (Marco Kröger) - but Mick has ot a problem, he's addicted to heroin and would do anything to get a shot. Petra knows that, and since she's so in love with Mick, she supplies him with the drug, and to get the money for it, she steals from her own mom (Dagmar von Thomas) and frequently hooks up with her friend Doris, who's a stripper and part-time prostitute who sometimes takes her along for jobs, and since Doris is on heroin herself, she understands the girl.

Mick might be a drug addict, but he's still enough of a man to not want his girlfriend prostitute herself and steal from her mother, so he breaks up with her and goes into hiding. When Petra finds him again, she has to realize Mick has become a male prostitute. At a party, Petra drinks herself into a coma, and it's only thanks to Dirk (Benjamin Carwath), who has been secretly in love with her forever, that she gets back home. Now that Mick's out of the picture, Dirk figures it's the perfect time to butt in. So he takes Petra on a trip to the country, to help her find herself and hopes she will fall in love with him. The plan seems to work, too ...

In the meantime, Mick the male prostitute has hit one of his customers over the head, and is soon enough arrested in a drug raid and booked for murder. But thanks to a sympathetic teacher (Ingeborg Steinbach) of his and her lawyer boyfriend (Michael Büttner), the case is reexamined, it's found out that it wasn't Mick's blow that took the man out, and Mick is released. And as a bonus, he has kicked his heroin habit while in custody.

The first schoolday after the holidays: Petra arrives with Dirk, happier than she has been in month, but once she sets her eyes on Mick, she totally forgets Dirk even exists ...

In an unrelated story, two schoolgirls (Karin König, Martina Engel) try to blackmail their teacher (Wolfgang Plumhoff), but in such a clumsy way that their plan almost backfires.

 

An attempt to cash in on the success of the then very popular book Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo in both title and topic (which was made into the movie Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo/Christiane F. by Uli Edel in 1981), this movbie features none of the insight and sophistication of the book and later adaptation but is a quickly shot sexploitation cheapy very much in the tradition of the Schoolgirl Report-movies, even with its fair share of misplaced bad comedy tagged on and quite a bit of unprovoked nudity thrown in for good measure. In other words, this is not a good movie, but fun to watch still.

Interestingly, lead actress Katja Bienert was only 11 when this was shot, but she doesn't only look like a 16 year old (and proves to be fully developed in her topless scenes) but is also pretty good at portraying her character's emotional turmoil - especially since most of her character's experience's must have been way above and beyond a 11 year old.
