A Relationship

A 50-year-old Palestinian immigrant who has recently got Swedish citizenship and lives in Stockholm thinks about suicide because of loneliness. One day he gets a message from a Ukrainian unknown woman who claims she lives in the separatists-controlled area in the east of Ukraine. They start a virtual relationship and plan to marry. The man decides to travel to Ukraine and meet the woman, but she claims that the roads to the government-controlled area are closed and she has to move by Russian roads which costs too much while she has not enough money. The man tries to find a way to take her out of the separatist-controlled area, but he gets that the woman’s town is in the government-controlled area and she has no problem to move. When she finds out that the man has found the right information about the situation in her area, she disappears and does not answer his messages. While the man still feels himself in the lovely mood of the relationship and tries to contact her again, however, he guesses she is a hustler.
