Summary Olga is a nurse from the Ukraine who only knows poverty. She searches for a better life in the West. Paul is an unemployed security guard from Austria who travels to the East in search of the same. Both are looking for work, a new beginning, an existence, and life. Olga comes from a place where unremitting poverty is the order of the day. Paul comes from a place where unemployment doesn't mean hunger, but a crisis of meaning and sense of uselessness. Both are struggling to believe in themselves and to find a meaning in life.
