This documentary follows Gerhard
Grimmer, the secretary of a chemical plant in Bruna (and the liaison
between the plant's management and its employees), as he attempts to
improve morale among the workers. Always concerned about the feelings
and needs of the mostly-female employees, he is well-liked by them.
Each day is a challenge for Grimmer as he tactfully uses his charming
manner and smart appearance to improve the factory's atmosphere and
solve various problems.
