Sandra Gets A Job

A psychological drama about a young Doctor of Physics who unexpectedly loses her job in an interest research group. Getting a new job, it seems simple at first glance, but after a few failures Sandra feels herself ever more clearly as unemployed. Every new attempt to find a job is increasingly humiliating way around the evaluation, adaptation and acting. In addition, she must hide her failure, at least for successful parents who also work in the world of science.
