Vice Lieutenant Eismayer, the toughest instructor in the Austrian army, guards a secret carefully hidden from the public: he is gay. When he falls in love with a recruit, his heteronormatively constructed life is shaken. For a man like Eismayer, the traditional role model of the soldier is incompatible with a gay relationship. Will he remain true to his image as a tough guy or will he follow the call of his heart? In the end, can the two even be compatible? Based on true events.
