A cinematic portrait of Oberhausen that gives an authentic picture of everyday life in an industrial city in its prime. The daily routine of the coal and steel workers determines the rhythm of the film, which gives empathetic insights into work below ground and production processes of heavy industry above ground. It also looks at the leisure activities and everyday pursuits of city residents, while not ignoring problems.
