DDR 1969/1970, Spielfilm

Inhalt

Close to the Wind



The electrician Peter Drews is a brigadier at a Baltic Sea dockyard. His men are among the most reliable and diligent workers at the dockyard. Their motivation, however, increasingly suffers from Peter’s narcissism and imperiousness. Whenever an important question arises, he is the one who reaches a decision without regarding the rest of them. Even his girlfriend Brigitte who is also a member of the brigade finds it increasingly difficult to accept his behavior. One day, Peter decides that the entire group must enter the navy - just because he has received his conscription call. While four men follow Peter into the navy, Brigitte, who has broken up with Peter, takes over the control of the brigade. During the work at the ship on which Peter is based at she meets the charming lieutenant Asmus. They get romantically involved. Meanwhile, Peter is forced to comprehend that in the army his idea of “leadership” is out of place. Supported by the wise captain Baumert, Brigitte and the refined Peter find back together.
