Twelve year old Edgar is on vacation with his mother -- a lawyer's wife -- in Switzerland.  While there, they meet Baron von Haller, who drives a fancy car, which causes exciting enthusiasm in Edgar.  The baron uses the boy's admiration to get to his mother, who doesn't seem averse to an affair.  Edgar sees through the game the adults are playing and feels betrayed.  Angry, he smashes the baron's windshield and runs home to his father. 
 
Der zwölfjährige Edgar macht mit seiner Mutter, einer Anwaltsgattin, Urlaub in der Schweiz. Dort begegnen sie Baron von Haller, der einen extravaganten Wagen fährt und damit Edgars Begeisterung erregt. Der Baron nutzt die Zuneigung des Jungen, um sich an seine Mutter heranzumachen, die einer Affäre durchaus nicht abgeneigt scheint. Edgar durchschaut das Spiel der Erwachsenen allmählich und fühlt sich verraten. Zornig schlägt er an Hallers Wagen die Scheibe ein und läuft davon, nach Hause zu seinem Vater.

The latter pays more attention to the boy’s mother than to the boy himself, and decides to use Edgar to wheedle his way into her affections. When Edgar realises he has been used, he is far from happy…
