She cleans apartments in order to send money to her family in the Ukraine, but then she discovers that not only is she alone, she is alone and pregnant. She has no one in Israel and only her landlord, Victor, an eccentric 47 year old, comes to her rescue. He helps in the release of her boyfriend from the detention facility, but then Christina discovers that she has feelings for the landlord and that she now has an opportunity to turn her life around
