#dreamjob #happiness #TheBestVersionOfYourself. Or just you and your friends, young wild and stupid, shitfaced against the rest. Choose wisely. The perpetual underdog Wanja gets the unique chance to start a career as an architect and finally becomes an adult. Amongst all the new won privileges she starts missing the friends from her youth. The more successful she becomes the more lonely she feels. She begins to understand that the youngsters cherish something that the adults have lost: community.
