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.
