The point in this message movie is the same as in several others from West Germany that look with a jaundiced eye at the post-World War II years: alienation kills more than just the spirit. Arno (Marius Mueller-Westernhagen) has inherited a decrepit soap factory from his grandfather, along with a large set of problems. First and foremost in the set is Mosch (Valter Taub) who currently runs the operation. Mosch is of the old school, so old that Arno has never heard of it. Unable to open up his tight fist to cover even the most obvious repairs and renovations, Mosch cannot see that he may one day be the agent of his own destruction.
