The painstaking and exhausting work of the switchmen at Dresden-Friedrichstadt station, day an night, in all weathers. The version chosen by the filmmaker stylises the men's dignity, the violence of work, the night's chill, the lamps, the fog and snow, without emptying them of their substance or breath. There is no commentary, and the only words are those uttered by the men at work.
