Hans Moll, another protagonist of the film, also suffers from unemployment. But suddenly, he is torn out of his loneliness and melancholy when he, just like a teenager, falls in love with his new neighbour. Moll′s wife does not realize that her husband is cheating on her because she is too busy pushing ahead her career as a guard.
