- Synopsis / Plot
- Two individual fates move in opposite directions. Olga, a nurse fed up with merely scraping by, leaves Ukraine and travels West in search of a better life. That better life will be in Vienna as a cleaner and later as an internet. Paul is already in the West, lives in Vienna and is an unemployed security guard. The odd jobs that help him get by and the friends willing to lend him money are getting harder to find. Every morning he finds it harder and harder to find a reason to get up from bed. Paul decides to migrate to the East and ends up in Ukraine delivering and repairing fruit machines. And he is still missing a reason to get up in the morning.
