Germany towards the end of the Second World War. The drama is set in a small town in Franconia near Nuremberg. Gudrun, who is about twelve years old, experiences the end of her carefree childhood against the backdrop of turbulent times. Her father is far away fighting on the Eastern Front in Russia. Her mother has packed Gudrun off to her grandmother in the country to prevent her from becoming an inconvenient witness to her own love affair. Gudrun seeks closeness to Fritz, who is just a little older than she is. Her motives are a mixture of a childish liking for him mingled with her first yearnings for love. They tell each other of their longings and secrets. But it just has to be Fritz who betrays Gudrun's biggest secret....
