Jakub is in trouble for overstaying in Bosnia and is faced with the possibility of deportation if he does not obtain a temporary visa within five days. To apply for one, however, requires money that he does not have. Jakub resists the risky opportunities for easy cash, until he realises that everyone — including his girlfriend Emira who is stealing money from work to continue school — is doing what they have to do to survive. Under such circumstances, Jakub begins to grasp the true cost of his cross-border relationship.
