Westend

Deutschland 2000/2001 Spielfilm

Summary

Westend

The friends Mike and Alfred are unemployed. They spend their empty days drinking beer at a road-side snack bar. Half-hearted attempts to find work have not got them anywhere. 

One day, they take up the proposal of a regular drinking partner Rasto to take over a derelict motorway kiosk, but it soon becomes apparent that Rasto doesn′t have his business in order. Shady business relations use criminal techniques to pressure him to pay his debts. In spite of the long odds, Mike and Alfred manage to turn the kiosk into a goldmine, but that can′t save Rasto. When Alfred falls in love with a supermarket check-out girl and neglects his work, while Mike turns into a workaholic, disaster cannot be avoided. The turbulence of working life puts the friendship of the former jobless Mike and Alfred to the test. It isn′t that easy to get what everyone already seems to have: work, money, recognition and the right woman at your side.
