A nurse from the Ukraine searches for a better life in the West, while an unemployed security guard from Austria heads East for the same reason. Two individual fates, two opposite directions. Olga and Paul. Both are looking for work, a new beginning, an existence, life: Olga, who comes from the Eastern part of Europe, where unremitting poverty is the order of the day. Paul, who comes from the Western part, where unemployment means not hunger, but a crisis of meaning and sense of uselessness. Both are struggling to believe in themselves, to find a meaning in life. In both the West and East. Both travel to a new country, and thus into it's depths. Import Export deals with sex and death, living and dying, winners and losers, power and helplessness.
