When David met Goliath ... Since the investment giant Inneholm took over the local steel factory, business has been going down the tubes. The workforce rehearses their uprising, and Babs returns home as a union lawyer and wage negotiator. For Patrick the soccer fan, the situation is heading toward a double finale: the fate of the factory on one hand, and his ex and only true love Babs on the other. Die Werkstürmer is a fairytale-like social comedy with a decidedly Styrian flavor. www.diewerkstuermer.at, www.thimfilm.at
