The Europeans – Vidas

Vidas - The Europeans

Vidas has wanted to leave the city for years. He dreams of going to rich countries where the lowest salaries are higher than a normal salary here. “In two months, I’ll have a green card for America,” he says. But he has to take care of his ill father and his back hurts, so he stands in line for the food bank. “Don’t you have any jobs where you live? Two months, two months,” he then mumbles the mantra that keeps him going. rug doet pijn, dus staat hij in de rij voor de voedselbank. “Heb jij geen werk waar jij woont? Nog twee maanden, twee maanden,” prevelt hij dan weer zijn mantra. Het houdt hem op de been.
