Summary A young idealistic teacher, just starting her career in East German schools, discovers her students hide their true thoughts and only say what they are expected to say. The young teacher tries to encourage open discussions about taboo topics, attempting to break down the walls of suspicion and cynicism. Her superiors view her actions with unease and eventually intervene to discipline Carla. This film was labeled nihilistic, skeptical and hostile by the Unity Party of German (SED) and only in 1990, after the fall of the Wall, was Carla screened in cinemas
