Taking it Back
(Austria) RT: 94 Mins

Writer/Director: Andreas Schmied (in attendance)

Cast: Michael Ostrowski, Hilde Dalik

Patrick Angerer is not especially impressed when his co-workers at Steelworks Falkendorf begin to protest the new wages set by Inneholm, a Swedish private equity firm that recently assumed responsibility of the factory. However, when his ex, Babs Brossmann, shows up in town with her new partner and arrogant boyfriend, Ulf, on behalf of the workers union, Patrick decides to take action. As negotiations take a dive and replacement workers are assembled, it is up to Patrick and his FC Steelworks football team to save the factory for the shady corporate sharks, whose only concern is draining the last few profits out of the business. Taking It Back is a whimsical look at corporate politics, blue-collar perseverance, and reconciling old love.

That is until one night, when the boys find themselves in the middle of an unexpected confrontation that ends in a local drunk and racist being pushed off a cliff. Antti and Muhis must now hold onto the terrible secret of that night while navigating the dangerous town shaken by this accident and maintaining their friendship at the same time.
