60-year-old Walter Scholl (Rainer Bock) is a former champion weightlifter who now works as a mover for forced evictions in Roland Grone’s (Uwe Preuss) relocation company. Walter struggles to ignore the increasing pain caused by his backbreaking job, just as he ignores the plight of those whom he forces from their homes. Grone, working with a dubious crime family, plans to clear an apartment house in one of the best neighborhoods of all tenants, allowing them to sell the building at a considerable profit. The problem: Walter believes that the one remaining tenant, who refuses to leave despite a court order, is his son, Jan (Albrecht Schuch), whom he abandoned decades before.
