Reviewers found that Gossekind is so earnestly heavy-handed that they were convinced that it was made to settle some personal agenda for the director or other filmmakers. The story begins as Axel, a boy prostitute who has suffered various kinds of abuse at home, encounters much the same thing out on the street with the married men who are his tricks. One trick in particular, Karl, has taken an interest in him, giving Axel a day at the fair. In addition, the older man is preparing to leave his wife and child after "coming out." He wants Axel to move in with him. Karl goes back home for a visit and finds his wife in bed with another man and soon afterwards finds Axel having sex with the gardener. Already teetering on the edge of things, the distraught man commits suicide.
