Marcel, 17, and Alessandro, 17, are play fighting during a break at their canoe trip on the river Moder in France. At the Heinrich-Wetzlar-Haus at the Schloss Stutensee, they are kept locked away for several months with other young offenders to avoid remand in custody while they wait for their trial. This programme of the youth service aims at trying to work in a positive way with them instead of becoming badly influenced during remand in custody.
