Jochen - a Golzower From Philadelphia

Jochen - A Golzower from Philadelphia is the seventeenth film of the Golzow-series. The son of an agriculture functionary, Jochen, who only attended school in Golzow for one year, allows glimpses into his personal life. He helped to establish the socialist order in Philadelphia, then in Golzow and last in Bernau near Berlin.

The heavyweight with a special sense for practical things became a milker, was a border guard, got married and now lives with his wife and three children in Bernau. Just as disappointed with the German Democratic Republic then as well as with its demise, he wants to have nothing to do with politics anymore.
