Brief synopsis

Martin has to move from the country to Vienna in order to start his first job in an electric-shop. There he becomes the decisive witness in an argument between the correct Stocker and the provocative, light-hearted Woschitz. Martin has to take sides and his decision will affect everybody involved. And it will have a long-lasting impact on his own life.
