Christoph is a trainee police officer at WEGA, the Viennese Special Task Force – each day full of testosterone, confrontation and group pressure. When he shoots a man, supposedly in self-defence, he is celebrated by his colleagues as a hero, but in the world outside the reaction is critical. Lukacs addresses the theme of police violence, inspired by the question: ”How do policemen function among themselves in their own microcosm?” Although it is strongly critical of the prevailing police system, the film cannot be seen purely as an anti-police film. Lukacs` main concern rather is to point out the problems in the system and to exemplify them. The film is incredibly topical and relevant.
