Synopsis

Anne and Mathias Wernicke have been married for twenty years and live an uneventful life in a small village. They and their son Ulli work at a local factory. Unexpectedly, there are suddenly plans for large scale redundancies at the factory, and trade union official Robert Stubenrauch arrives in the area. He stays at the home of Anne and Mathias and has a greater impact on their lives than the threat of redundancy and the ensuing strike. He and Anne begin to fall in love and Anne leaves Mathias.
