(Miss)

Fifty-year-old Ruza comes to Switzerland hoping for a new, better life. Now, half a century later, she has only one passion left - money. Ruza owns a small restaurant in Zurich, and runs it with a firm grip and financial success. Her life is meticulously planned out - work, calculating costs, dinner in a single-person’s apartment. She has built her life here and does not think about returning to Serbia.

Sixty-year-old Mila, Ruza's longtime employee, is a completely different type of person. She has been living in Switzerland with her husband for decades. She works really hard in a hope of making her life dream come true - buying a house in her homeland Croatia. Their mundane lives are disrupted when 22-year-old Ana from Sarajevo enters the scene. She is a beautiful, impulsive girl looking for a new life and fleeing the recent war in Bosnia. She needs money, so she takes a job in the restaurant. She is a good employee, but she protests against Ruza's strict rules. She does not want people at work to know that she is homeless and that she wanders across the city at night looking for comfort and tenderness in random affairs.
