One of the most shocking and controversial films ever made, Christiane F tells the true story of a young girl's descent into the drug scene of 70's Berlin. Christiane, lonely and alienated, lives with her divorced mother. When a school friend takes her to a club where her hero David Bowie plays, she finds herself in another world, one she is desperate to be a part of. In her new environment drugs are commonplace and though frightened, her fears of rejection are greater. She begins with Valium, then LSD, until ultimately she discovers heroin. Soon addicted, she turns to prostitution to support her habit. Christiane is 14.
