Synopsis
Behind the fluffy towels and crisp white sheets of Berlin's finest hotels belies a tale of brilliant entrepreneurship: A company takes the dirty laundry of the German hotels to Poland and brings it back clean the very next day. Outside of Germany, labour is cheaper and regulations are less constricting. But farbeyond this fascinating capital venture remains the harsh realityof everyday life of the hard-working Polish workers, throughwhose hands the white sheets pass. While Beata struggles toraise her three children on her meager salary, the more mature Monika reminisces about her unrealizedchildhood dreams of becoming a doctor, compelled to watch her teenage daughter Marta graduallyfollow in her footsteps.
