What is the feeling of being nowhere without a root? Four Ukrainian men work at the biggest factory of Central Europe, in a small Hungarian town. They don’t feel at home there, however, they have to work hard to support their families. They share a small dormitory in a one-star hotel, go to work and come back together every day. Drinking and watching TV after a long working day have become their only hobbies. With different workers coming from all over central Europe, the one-star gradually becomes their small shelter. When will they finally finish their project? What is their next destination?
