Ab morgen bin ich mutig

If twelve-year-old Karl could have chosen who he fell in love with, it probably wouldn’t have been his classmate Lea. Lea is the tallest girl in the class, a head taller than Karl. Nevertheless, Karl needs a lot of courage to find out whether Lea likes him too. Karl’s older brother Tom advises him to do something with Lea. Karl invites the girl into his improvised bathroom laboratory. Taking and developing pictures has been Karl’s favourite pastime for years. Lea is impressed by Karl’s “light magic” in the lab. But Karl still doesn’t know whether she reciprocates his feelings. Time is running out. The sixth school year is almost over. After the summer holidays, Lea goes to another school. Karl’s last chance to become Lea’s boyfriend is the upcoming school trip.
