Urban life can be difficult. Here we first follow a couple who encounter one problem after another as they hunt for a flat. The estate agent is a crook and makes their job even harder. When it becomes impossible to find somewhere to rent, there’s only one thing left to do: live in a shanty town. One of the inhabitants shows us what living in that environment actually means.
