15-year-old Elisa suffers greatly from the separation of her parents. She now has to move to a council flat in Berlin-Neukölln with her mother. The young people at her new school behave quite differently from those living in the tranquil neighbourhood on the outskirts of the city. Elisa reacts to her stress and loneliness with fainting spells and is soon declared a victim by the boys in her class.
