A poet and writer gets fired from his job at a local newspaper after writing a review of his own work. To make ends meet he gets a job at the shipyard, a world completely different from the one he is used to.
A group of party goers have trouble getting their boat ashore on a small island. The inhabitants of the island try to help, often with the help of an old sailor, and the results are absurd and hilarious.
It's not an uncommon story. People get unemployed and try to find a new job. Of course on the employers conditions. This means humiliation and despair. Also common feelings which has been neglected in Swedish movies for long.
Here it's very personalized, because in reality, there's of course always a living human being behind these stories. Nermina Lukac as the unemployed girl is superb and so is her father, played by Milan Dragisic. His situation is worse, since he's worn out and hardly can work at all.
Also another aspect here. The immigrants have become the new working class. A new kind of situation.
