Olga is a Ukrainian nurse who moves West in search of a fresh start, whilst Security Guard Paul moves from Vienna to the Ukraine with his stepfather.

Ultimately their expectations of glittering new lives have to be checked as very bleak reality bites, and they learn stark lessons about sexuality and death.
