  • A love story about 17 year-old Uschi, and East German saleswoman, and Hans, an unemployed auto mechanic from West Berlin. The city is reflected through the eyes and feelings of these youthful figures. For example, the bright shop windows in West Berlin are much more appealing to Uschi than the plain gray buildings in the East, so she leaves her parents house for the West. Uschi takes the audience on a journey behind the facade of the economic miracle in West Berlin. In the end, she returns home to her parents' house along with Hans, who leaves his job in the West to make a living in the East.
