The work of the DEFA director Helmut Dziuba has always shown a high interest in the individual problems of the adolescent generation. Several films on juvenile subjects are analysed in detail, among others Sabine Kleist, Age 7... (Sabine Kleist, 7 Jahre…, 1982), Your Presence Is Imperative (Erscheinen Pflicht, 1983), Forbidden Love (Verbotene Liebe, 1989) and Jana And Jan (Jana und Jan, 1991/92). An interview at full length with the director completes the book.
