Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Two wildly different children from the slums of Hamburg become friends and attempt to find freedom in a raft out on the North Sea. Uwe is a local tough, leading a gang using methods learned from his brutal father. Dschingis is the treasured son of his single Asian mother whose foreignness causes him endless problems. When Uwe has altogether enough of his father's beatings, he tries to hide out at Dschingis' house, but the boy's mother is afraid to keep him, thinking it illegal. The two of them then decide to head out onto the North Sea.
