The film follows the inhabitants as they adjust to the new situation, in particular Joschi, a teenage Hitler Youth member who is fascinated by the Americans.
The film was produced through Edgar Reitz Filmproduktions in collaboration with Bernd Eichinger's Solaris Film- und Fernsehproduktion and Westdeutscher Rundfunk. It was released in theatres on 6 February 1977 and broadcast on West 3 on 8 March the same year.
