Obsessed with violent movies and video technology, 14-year-old Benny (Arno Frisch) takes advantage of his parents' absence to have a girl (Ingrid Stassner) come over and watch a tape of a pig slaughter he has viewed repeatedly. Afterward, he kills her with the slaughtering gun used in the video -- and records the murder. His parents decide to cover up his crime. While his mother (Angela Winkler) takes a seemingly indifferent Benny to Egypt, his father (Ulrich Mühe) gets rid of the evidence.
