An 8th grade class of schoolgirls embarks on a voyage of discovery. They want to understand how film works. Because, as their teacher Edgar Reitz explains, filmmaking is not simply achieved by turning on the camera and recording something. At first they are passive, but they soon dare to take their first steps and master the technology. At a reunion many years later, we find out what effect these first film classes had.
