"Piss and shit everywhere !" Thus begins this teenager's life in the hellish world of drugs and prostitution in late 70's Berlin. 

Eight years before his successful adaptation of Hubert Selby Jr (Last Exit to Brooklyn), Uli Edel took on the bestseller by Kai Hermann and Horst Rieck. A portrait of Berlin's underworld in the 70's, with disarming sincere acting by Natja Brunckhorst (later seen in Fassbinder's Querelle) and featuring David Bowie playing himself in a key scene. Cult and addictive !
