The film depicts the daily routine of 35 men working for one of the last remaining governmental institutions in Austria that only employ men. Their responsibility is to look after a 40km stretch of one of Europe’s biggest transit routes, the A1. Inspired by the poem of one of the road workers, the film is a sensitive journey to the world of pure masculinity, camaraderie and team spirit.
