Five former shipbuilders tells personal cock-and-bull stories about drinking, socialising, accidents and fighting in a tough-as-nails man's world at the legendary B&W shipyard on Refshaleøen, Copenhagen. In this documentary they are taken back to the shipyard, where they spend most of their lives among the 10,000 workers at the shipyard, until it closed in 1996. Today the metal festival Copenhell is located at the abandoned shipyard grounds, and every June, the location is invaded by 10,000 metal fans. Two of the former workers visits the metal festival, to see what is happening at their old workplace. The shipyard is still a place for Men & Metal.

The film was selected for CPH:DOX 2013, Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival.
