Résumé: Set in a small German town at the end of the 19 th Century, the adolescent Wendela is confused about the changes in her body, but her mother is too embarrassed to explain the facts of life. Moritz is another young person traumatised by puberty, and starts failing in his school lessons. When his friend Melchior tries to help him, their Headmaster strikes them both and tells them to get on with their Latin. Disaster looms when Wendela falls in love with Melchior and they both discover desires unlike anything they’ve ever felt. Moritz soon drops out of school when neither his one adult friend, Melchior’s mother, nor his equally outcast friend Ilse can deal with his plea for help. He kills himself. The Headmaster blames this “crime” on Melchior, and when Wendela is found to be pregnant, Melchior is shipped off to a reformatory prison and Wendela to a backstreet abortionist. Melchior escapes and runs to meet Wendela at midnight in the graveyard, only to learn he has lost her forever.
