Experiencing Interruptions?

Unwanted People

By night, Ludmila works as a toilet cleaner in a fashionable music club where she meets obnoxious and spoiled people who disrespect her because of her job. During the day time she looks after her husband, who is sick with Alzheimer disease.
The contrast between her professional life, in close proximity to the very rich and their over the top surroundings, and the modest manner in which she lives her life slowly leads Ludmila to a mental break-down. The only amusement or release that she has - is her platonic attraction towards an angelic and sexy women singer - who herself has no interest towards Lydmila whatsoever. When Ludmilla can’t bare this dull routine any longer, she begins to fantasize that she can run away from her responsibilities toward her husband, to leave him in the “swarm” of other “unwanted people”.
