Movies about juvenile mayhem and schemes by children to outwit their parents and teachers are a popular staple of German filmmaking, and the director of this film, Werner Jacobs, practically invented the theme. All the action takes place in a girls' school. The girl who carries most of the film's focus, Trixi (Mascha Gonska), is stage-struck and has been thrown out of several schools prior to this, but after several minor scrapes she is induced to mend her ways and settle down.
