    • Synopsis
    • Cologne, mid-sixties. Alex, an 18-year-old Australian enrols in art school, where he falls in love with an angelic-like girl, Gabriele, a 24-year-old fellow art student. An uneven, but tender relationship develops, but Gabriele graduates soon and finds a scenic design job at the Cologne opera.
      A new opera about the Cologne churches is in the works; Gabriele is sent up in the many church towers of Cologne to make drawings for the stage backdrop. This is where Alex’s search for Gabriele begins.
      Only guided by mysterious church bell ringings, arranged by a mischievous church custodian, Fischer, does Alex finally meet Gabriele again. Love blossoms.
      But Gabriele’s scenic designs prove to be highly popular, she is hired away by the Viennese opera for their new production; she has to leave town immediately.
      Alex only finds out from Fischer that she is gone; devastated he slinks through the streets of Cologne. Feeling sorry for him, Fischer quickly contacts the Brotherhood of Church Custodians - at a pre-arranged time all the bells of Cologne mysteriously begin to ring.
      Alex realizes it is for him, he takes it so much to heart that he gets on his scooter, mapping his route to Vienna, to pursue his love yet again.
