Synopsis:
A strange green cloud suddenly destroys all human life on earth. The only survivors are a bunch of children with their teacher, who have just been on a space shuttle excursion. When they return, they have to find their own rules of society and of course they experience the weirdest adventures.

Comments:
Congenious film version of A. S. Neill's novel, anarchistic, violent (-)) and very unconventional. The film involves the children's media experiences in its dramaturgy. The children even have the power to change the film's story! For some "violent" scenes in Germany the films has been rated 12 years or higher. For a theatrical distribution with this age rate is impossible the director has to do some re-editing.
