There are only 50 metres between the Fröbel School and the Model School - but the pupils are separated by worlds. A high proportion of migrants and parents with "blue collar" jobs on the one hand, early support and designers or therapists as parents on the other. The protagonists in Christin Veith's documentary experiment film themselves and their everyday lives over the course of three years. The people's origin marks the starting point of this cautious and open-hearted Coming-of-Age documentary and leads to a direct comparison of the differences in the educational system and the different social strata. In between lie prejudices, dreams, fears and ultimately worlds that Christin Veith brings together with impressive ease in a joint film project of the adolescents.
