Karl Klotz is fat. He is in love with the tightrope walker “The Fabulous Sandra”. But his teenage behavior does not suit his mother. And since the beatings are not productive, Karl’s body and soul are turned over to a self-centered, sex-obsessed psychiatrist: Fritz. Life has not been kind to Karl Klotz, who has been a geek since birth: the girls find him perverted, the teachers despise him, and even the fascist love of his own mother is not enough to accept the son as he is. Karl, however, is not affected by anything. The only things that really move him are the good food and the legendary Sandra, who has enough trouble in the air and on the ground. “Let it go, Karl Klotz!” One would like to yell at him while the world conspires against him behind his back.
