After many years working on the railway, Lena loses her post as a ticket inspector – a job she liked and which gave her a sense of self-esteem. Lena is very lonely and is shaken up by losing her job and the structure it gave her life. Day after day, Lena grows increasingly keen to work and to give her life meaning again. Finally she ends up checking tickets again anyway – enjoying her former routine and a new sense of self-esteem. For a while everything seems to go fine, until one day she bumps into her former colleague, Micha, while checking tickets “illegally”. Before Micha – who has a soft spot for Lena – can leap to her defence, a passenger spots this apparent fraud and Lena’s ploy is revealed.
