Inga, who has two loans and a young husband, really needs a job as a restaurant manager. Her natural shyness, as well as the negative attitude of the restaurant owner, who considers all women to be “chicks”, prevent her from showing her true self and talent in the interview. But then the Waiter brings her an envelope with the mysterious title "The Egyptian Story".

Without love, everything loses its meaning, becomes unkind, ugly, dead. Love life, love a person, love the business you are doing, and the world will be saved! That’s what I was thinking about when I shot this film.
