DDR 1973/1974, Spielfilm

Inhalt

Too Skinny for Love

18-year old Susanne works as a skilled labourer in a textile factory. She is working hard and diligently. Furthermore, she always helps others and takes on every little task that she is asked to do. For her work, she receives a lot of credit, but nobody is interested in her as a person – nor as a young woman. The men completely overlook her, even the slightly meditative Lutz whom she knows since they were children and whom she has fallen in love with. But Lutz has not even noticed that Susanne has turned into a woman. When even her friend Daisy treats her ruthlessly, Susanne finally comes to the point where she comes out of her shell and speaks up for her own interests. She succeeds to win Lutz′s heart and is happy with him for a short period of time. Her new-found confidence even helps her to cope with their eventual break-up.
