Two students, both with university degrees, the boy from the polytechnic, the girl in pharmacy, are both out of work and survive on an assortment of odd jobs. While they were studying, they were protected but today they are confronted with the brutal reality of the job market and the harshness of urban life. But their wish is to stay in town and to build themselves a future.

What happens when you’ve got a degree but you can’t find a job opening?
