Synopsis
Social decline looks very differently throughout Europe: in its existential threat, in the personal sentiment or the socio-political suspension. The documentary first-theatre-now-film-production examines how the relation between identity and work has been developing throughout three women generations in working-class families in Germany and Poland: Which correlation is there between the experience of social decline and political bearings, expectations as well as wishes?
Over the course of a year werkgruppe2 has interviewed women who live in two structurally weak industrial regions (Ruhr area and Lower Silesia) which are characterized by a high rate of unemployment and poverty.

With: Janka Woźnicka, Marta Zięba, Janina Sachau, Trixi Strobel, Ingrid Domann, Bożena Baranowska
