Synopsis

On August 23, 1944 in a small city in Romanian Transylvania, the 16 year old Felix Goldschmidt awaits his classmates for their traditional Exitus Party (school graduation). However, this very day the Kingdom of Romania takes leave of its ally of many years – Nazi Germany – thus ending the 800 year old, highly successful story of ethnic German immigration at the feet of the Carpathian Mountains. The film is an adaptation of Eginald Schlattner’s Der geköpfte Hahn.
