Synopsis: In DIE STEINE the 14-year-old Sophie bikes to a secluded area on a summer afternoon in Berlin to read the book "The Annihilation of European Jews". After being disturbed and while looking for another place she meets the same-aged Joseph with whom she spends the afternoon. A group of paving stones next to a bunker gives them an idea: they want to dedicate a stone to each person murdered by the Nazis. With chalk on stones they set up a monument to the dead to commemorate every single victim.
