Maryna and Tava are working shifts on a milk farm in eastern Germany. In the village, they are known as ’the two Poles’. They themselves ignore each other’s existence. When the farm manager goes on a business trip, Tava does not show up at work and seems to have disappeared. The next night a disturbing encounter takes place. Maryna wakes up in her container realizing that she is not alone: Tava is lying next to her, fast asleep, firmly clinging to her. But during the night shift Maryna withholds the news of her compatriot’s return. When she returns to her container, Tava has disappeared again.
