A summer in the early eighties. Julia, known as Juli, the headmaster's daughter, is back from boarding school and meets her first love Robert, the son of a scythe-working family, again at the village fair. He immediately realises that she is still wearing the ring he gave her. It is completely worn out, a cheap plastic thing from a chewing gum machine, full of hope for the future. He had given it to her on the last evening when she left for boarding school. Two years later, she still wears it.

The music theater project Scharnstein takes a radical change in the history of Scharnstein as its topic. It deals with the end of the scythe industry, which was an important economic sector of this region for many years and with it the resulting societal changes. The knowledge of the events is fading visibly. The aim of the project consists of continuing to anchor this important period within the collective consciousness of Scharnstein and the region as well as carrying it into the future. As a result, young people are the most important target group of the project. The goal that is intended to be achieved is that this history will be reflected upon more strongly.
