Alexander Maier, CFO of a Swiss automotive supplier company, is a perfectionist. When the company starts to flounder, top manager Werner Brockmann is called in to act as CEO and put the business back on track. He is a stone-cold restructuring specialist, always a step ahead, not interested in the problems, just in their solutions. He continuously challenges and affronts Maier and his innovation plan for the company’s future. At first, the two men cooperate but soon, they get into a hard-hitting conflict. Will they succeed in floating the company on the market? Starring Ulrich Tukur, who was recognized with a portrait-series at BIFF in 2002, and Stefan Kurt, JAGDZEIT was inspired by real events.
