Taking It Back
Taking It Back (Die Werkstürmer)
When the Falkendorfer steelworks are taken over by an investment group, the workforce and the village jitter in fear. All except for Patrick Angerer, who doubts that they’re going to change all that much. He cares more about the steelwork-team’s next soccer game. But when all the workers are locked out, the boss is already carting replacement workers to the plant, and the union sends in their lawyers, Patrick realises that the time has come to take responsibility. Together with Barbara, a union attorney who happens to be his ex, he takes industrial action.
