Etwas muss sich ändern im verkorksten Leben von Michael Walter: Er hat keine Arbeit, keine Frau, keinen Mumm und zu allem Überfuss klingt sein Nachname genau wie ein Vorname.

Aber schon bald merkt Michael, dass auf den machtvollen Pflasterstein nicht immer Verlass ist…

Something has to change in Michael Walter’s messed up life: he’s got no job, no wife, no courage and on top of all his last name sounds just like a first name. A mysterious cobblestone becomes Michael’s secret way to heaven. He gets a job and meets the Woman in Red with the exotic last name. But soon enough Michael finds out that there’s something wrong with the powerful cobblestone….

“Authentic scenes, as if the camera would not have been there, the dream of every documentary filmmaker”
(Der Tagesspiegel, Berlin)
a film that’s just so funny and well-made, the characters are really well-developed and interesting.”
(The Missoulian, Montana, USA)
“A very inspired documentary debut.“
(Financial Times Germany)
“Must see!”
(Berliner Morgenpost)
“absolutely worth watching….an entertaining portrait.“
(Huddle – German Football Magazine)
“You get neither heroes nor myths, neither legends nor warriors, but something much better to see: people. Guys, characters, winners, losers – me and you, so to speak, and all that with a dog-sized little digicam (but the optics of a 35mm movie) and shot by a woman. And she had little to do with football before. A sacrilege? Not at all.”
(Evolver – Austrian Film and Music Magazine)

American Football überfällt die Fußball-Nation Deutschland!!!
American Football ist der Nummer Eins Sport in den USA. Aber auch erstaunlich viele Deutsche sind total verrückt nach dem Gerangel auf dem Rasen. Der Dokumentarfilm “Weekend Warriors” begleitet vier Spieler der “Berlin Adler” bei ihrem Kampf um den wichtigsten Titel in Deutschland – den GERMAN BOWL. Die Kamera ist überall dabei, auf dem Footballfeld und in der Umkleidekabine, zu Hause auf dem Sofa und im Büro, bei Jubel und bei Tränen.
Und geht der Frage nach: Warum eigentlich spielen Deutsche American Football?
Ein mitreißender Sportfilm und ein unterhaltsamer Film über Männer, die Gewinner sein wollen – im Sport und im Leben.

American Football invades Soccer-Germany… and they’re loving it! Four young amateur football players from Berlin are the main focus of the film. For them this all-American sport is more than just a hobby and more than just a game. Football gives them guidance in life and a boost to their masculine ego.
“Weekend Warriors” portraits Herbie – the mama’s boy, Tilo – the show-off, Johnny – the young and confused, and Thomas – the thinker, during one football season with the “Berlin Adler”. The film explores in a humorous way how personal goals, moral values and rituals from the football field are applied to real life and vice versa.
