Heinz and Fred have created their own strange world in the province of Saxony-Anhalt - a documentary about loss, time and the value of work. This moving documentary is about a father and son who dedicate their lives to repairing things. They work in a junkyard where they have restored countless ancient broken machines. No matter if tractors, cranes, excavators, airplanes or ships. Everywhere are the signs of past and future work. Together they get up every morning at six and go to bed early in the evening after a day of hard work. At first glance, their occupation may not seem very modern. But the two of them give new meaning to the concept of dignity through work.
