After graduating from high school, Dorotka leaves her native Slovakia to find work in the Czech border town of Aš. Upon arriving, she is immediately confronted with a world of jaded seamstresses all waiting for the arrival of their German princes. The film authentically depicts the mundane surroundings that Dorotka quickly becomes a part of and also reflects the girls’ motives towards making harsh life-altering decisions, which can seem immoral when looked at simply from the surface.
