DDR 1958/1959, Spielfilm


Claudia is a self-confident girl who spends time in a Young Pioneer camp and wants to prove that she can keep up with the boys in a scouting wide game. At first, the boys are skeptical. During the game, which is based on true events from the period when the socialist laws came into effect, an illegal newspaper is meant to be transported from “Switzerland” to a meeting point of the “socialists”. In order to do this, the newspaper must be smuggled through the lines of some “Prussian Gendarms”. Claudia takes great efforts in the game, but since she acts on her own authority too much she endangers her team’s victory. Just in time, she realizes how important it is to proceed as a team and proves herself to be a valuable member of the collective.
