Good German Work (Kollegen)

In their daily routine the two craftspeople Uli and Didi work in their workshop and reflect on old teachers and the upcoming Village fair but also on the new guests in the village. These guests have given them an unusual commission: To build parts of a concentration camp on German soil - in 2020. In search of recognition for their work, they do not compromise themselves and do their best to meet the demands of their clients, an international film production company. The company is shooting a historical film in the neighborhood and the village ist upside down. GOOD GERMAN WORK is the absurd clash of a Brandenburg landscape with the film world, and in every frame one question resonates inevitably: Is this completely normal or purely insane?
