Synopsis

It’s Germany, 1891. The beautiful young Wendla explores her body and asks her mother where babies come from. Elsewhere, the brilliant and fearless young Melchior defends his buddy Moritz — a boy so traumatized by puberty he can’t concentrate on anything. One afternoon in the woods, Wendla and Melchior discover a desire unlike anything they’ve ever felt. "Spring Awakening" explores the confusion and desperation that ensue when the onrushing tide of hormones meets the ignorance of children. "Spring Awakening" celebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, poignancy, and passion that you will never forget.
