The movie debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in 1975 and won 3 awards. Kasper Hauser (Bruno Schleinstein) spends the beginning of his life chained in a small cellar, which caused him to have severe psychological delay due to isolation. For seven years he was bound in there with just one toy to play with. The only person Kasper sees is a gentleman in a black hat and jacket that brings him meals every day. The man feels sorry for the boy and takes him out of the cellar, he then proceeds to teach Kasper how to walk and talk. One day the mysterious man takes him to the town of Nuremburg and leaves him there to fend for himself. The towns circus director (Willy Semmelrogge) sees the money that could be made by placing Kasper in the circus as an attraction.
