At Dere TørAugust 28, 1980
Filmen tar utgangspunkt i en faktisk hendelse i Oslo i 1975. To 16 år gamle gutter har stjålet en bil og blir oppdaget av politiet. Etter en dramatisk biljakt forsøker guttene å stikke av til fots. En politimann trekker imidlertid våpen fra 20 meters hold og skyter den ene av guttene i ryggen slik at han dør. Filmen handler om Reinert, kammeraten til han som ble skutt. Reinert er ferdig med ungdomsskolen og arbeidsløs som de fleste av vennene. Han går å slenger, røyker litt dop, er sammen med gjengen og er misfornøyd. Egentlig ønsker han seg en jobb, ikke en slik drittjobb som moren har. Reinert møter Siri, en jente med fast jobb og mer bestemte meninger enn det som er vanlig i gjengen. Drapet på kalle har gjort Reinert mer samfunnsbevisst, Siri er med på å utvikle holdningene hans. Noe som er positivt for den kommende rettsaken.
