A look at the incendiary political situation in Austria at the end of the 1970s. It was the time that made Beckermann turn to film. First in collective efforts, here with Josef Aichholzer, who founded Filmladen distribution with Beckermann and Franz Grafl in 1978. Their motivation is clearly political. They listen where nobody else seems interested. The subject is a strike at the Semperit works in Traiskirchen. On different levels and by means of conversations, interviews, charts and photos the filmmakers try to understand what is otherwise treated only too superficially. Quite naturally the film lets the workers speak, too.
