Campus

Hanno Hackmann, a professor with a brilliant reputation and the best of prospects to be elected as university rector, reflects on his duties as a husband and loving father and wants to end the affair with the attractive student Babsi. But, suddenly, he is at the centre of a scandal. Hanno has allegedly raped a student! A sensation from which the disciplinary committee's chairman Bernie Weskamp hopes to benefit with a hefty hike up the career ladder. A disgrace which comes at just the right moment for the radical feminist and women's officer Dr.Wagner. And a story that the sensation-seeking press scramble for with every means at their command....
