After losing his lifelong position at an industrial corporation, Raphael is forced by the Austrian Unemployment Office to take an underwhelming job as a night-time security guard. He recently moved back in with his bedridden mother, who is also cared for by the dedicated Ukrainian nurse Vera. Through her support, Raphael gradually learns to cope with his new life , but a tragic incident breaks his world apart once more.  A warm-hearted narrative about a part of society, whose basis of existence is increasingly threatened.
