Description by OLDIES.com:
The Sprinter Can Run... But Not From Himself.
To try to please his parents, Wieland gives up his gay disco lifestyle and takes up the healthier world of sports. He becomes a sprinter, like his father was, and plays the role of a straight young man. His mother is very eager to see him succeed and urges Wieland to continually try harder. He befriends Brigitte, a shotputter, and takes a sudden passionate liking to the Valkyrian girl. This awakens in him an aspiration for the championship. Meanwhile, Wieland is being manipulated by a group of real-estate speculators who are interested in the stadium. The Sprinter rises to undreamed of heights, but in the spirit of Christoph Boll's black comedy, meets a sad end.
