Synopsis

Based on a true story, this powerful film – always engaging and even humorous at times – brings back one of the biggest grassroots movement for policy change in the history of West Germany. Wackersdorf is the name of a small Bavarian community. In the 1980s, plans to build a reprocessing plant for spent nuclear fuel without properly informing the local population sparked a rebellion. Torn between economic benefits and possible dangers for nature and its inhabitants, the community begins to resist – eventually turning Wackersdorf into the biggest protest movement in Germany since World War II, and serving as a blueprint for civic change today. Entertaining and universally relatable, „Wackersdorf” serves as call for civic action.
