Max Frisch’s Homo Faber, curve sketching and toxic asbestos in the restrooms: It’s just another stressful year at the Goethe Comprehensive School. But this time teacher Zeki Miller is actually keen on whipping his students into shape to pass their A-Levels. Unfortunately, the kids in his “chaos class” – especially Chantal, Danger and Zeynep – are simply not having it. In fact, the guidance counselor at the Job Information Center (JIC) has just quashed any dreams they had about their future prospects. Indeed, at this point, their frustration has reached a new level, which means they’re getting into even more trouble and refusing to do anything at all. How on earth is Mr. Miller going to motivate these teens? He can’t even count on help from Principal Gudrun Gerster, who’s already at loggerheads with the Department of Education for heading up the worst-performing comprehensive school in the state – a status owed in no small part to these very “problem” students. At least Mr. Miller has fresh support from newcomer Biggi Enzberger, who’s helping him out with an anti-bullying campaign.
