A group of German workers sets off to a construction site in the border region between Bulgaria and Greece. This foreign land and its breath-taking landscape awaken the men's sense of adventure, but they are also confronted with their own prejudice and mistrust due to the language barrier and cultural differences. The stage is quickly set for a showdown when men begin to compete for recognition and favor from the local villagers.

Meinhard Neumann, Reinhardt Wetrek
