“Raw Materials” is a drama about two loners, Lutz and Irsa, who are connected forever by a tragic accident on a construction site. Two people who stand on two different fronts in an unjust system trying to pursue their dreams. But while the one literally walks over dead bodies for his dream of climbing up the career, the other already fails on a dream of a safe home.
