"Men at Work" depicts the daily working life of one of the few remaining institutions in Austria that still employs only men. They are responsible for a 39 km stretch of Austria's biggest highway and transit route, the A1. Inspired by the poem of a road worker, the film explores masculinity, danger and camaraderie between 35 men.
