Synopsis

13-year-old Bernd (Friedhelm Barck) moves with his parents to the small town of Fichtenhainigen, where he makes friends with his new classmate Doris, whose father is a coach in the local judo association and invites Bernd to training. Bernd proves to be a capable athlete, but his parents, doubting his commitment, refuse to sign the consent form enabling him to continue. When, however, Bernd is embarrassed in front of his new classmates by his inability to dive off a 10-metre board, he resolves to show the others that he is not lacking in physical courage by continuing with judo, forging his father's signature on the consent form to do so. He finds a way of earning his own money, and saves up to buy a judo kit. He also makes friends with two other boys in his class, Schreier and Rolli. Finally, as a result of his hard work and talent, he is chosen to represent his club at a competitive event. What will happen, though, when his parents and his coach discover that he hasn't been entirely honest with them?
