Made in the waning days of East Germany's existence as a separate country, this film is perhaps indicative of a mood, a time, and a place which will be particularly meaningful to residents of that country at that time. Others may find its allusions mystifying. Based on a book by Jurij Koch entitled Eye Operation, this political allegory tells the story of a teen-aged boy who is recovering from a savage beating in a garbage dump, and who needs an eye operation in order to repair some of the damage.
