Best Foreign Language Film at the 88th Academy Awards.
Germany, May 1968: As the country is caught up in the midst a new era of freedom that includes the Rolling Stones, bell-bottoms, mini-skirts, the sexual revolution, and protests against the Vietnam War, rebellious 14-year-old Wolfgang is at odds with his parents. As a last resort, he is sent to Freistatt, a boy's only foster home for difficult teenagers. There he is to be educated to become a decent boy. Wolfgang puts up a determined resistance against the brutal working conditions and the perfidious education methods of the wardens; he doesn't allow them to get him down.
How long can Wolfgang manage to resist the violence, sexual abuse and oppression without brutalizing himself?
Based on true accounts, Brummunds film is about a boys merciless to save his last bit of humanity and dignity in an oppressive system.
