Austrian provocateur Ulrich Seidl returns with a meditative look at the demoralizing and dangerous lengths people will go to for work. A Ukrainian nurse moonlights in Internet porn before traveling to Austria to work; an Austrian lay-about, ducking mounting debts, signs on for itinerant work in Eastern Europe, ultimately drifting into Ukraine. In the new Europe, notions of East and West are liquid, with people converted like currency.
