This is what the film director will do as well – he will travel to Vienna and film the entire process. He will try to establish why these people do it, he will give his own reasons, find a wife and organise a fake wedding. He will reveal to us why people have been doing it thus far, what motivated them to pay for fake wives, and why these girls agree to such a thing. Full of twisted humour and absurdity, this film bares it all, fitting in the irrationality of the new Europe where there are no more physical boundaries, but a whole lot of bureaucratic boundaries and prejudices.
