ALASKA.DE

Berlin in the suburbs. An atmosphere of violence and boredom, buildings made from prefabricated slabs? The youth of this area is gathering in different groups and in the local youth club. Violence is the daily business. There begins the love story between Sabine and Eddie who first have to fight against all odds before really getting the chance to live like they want to. The plot centres on 16-year-old Sabine (Palleske), who meets Eddie (Droese) when she's looking for her father's apartment amongst endless blocks of flats. He reluctantly helps her, then is pleasantly surprised to find her in school the next day.
