Gritty drama based on the true confessions of 13-year-old Christiane (played here by Natja Brunckhorst), a girl who lives with her mother in a high-rise tower block, gets into drugs after visiting an ultra-modern disco known as the 'Sound', and eventually becomes a prostitute in order to pay for her heroin addiction. This hard-hitting film is set against the background music of David Bowie, who also appears briefly in a concert scene.
