Synopsis by Hal Erickson

The Austrian Unter Achtzehn (Under Age) deals with the plight of "problem" teenagers. Promiscuous 18-year-old Elfie Breitner (Vera Tschechowa) wants to become a fashion model. But Luise is under the jurisdiction of welfare officer Luise Gottschalk (Paula Wessely), who insists that the girl take a "useful" job in a laundry. Though Elfie rebels against Luise, in the end the welfare worker is proven to be right. In time-honored Cecil B. DeMille fashion, Unter Achtzehn illustrates the evils of illicit sex by showing off as much female skin as possible.
