Out of the blue Anna, an actress at a provincial city theater, is fired. Fresh off the stage, she suddenly finds herself at the local unemployment bureau. On the urging of her theater-obsessed case worker, she takes on teaching an acting course for eight 'hard-to-place' welfare recipients – as a compulsory training measure. Overcoming their substantial resistance, Anna forms the frustrated lone wolves into a group and starts to rehearse Antigone with them. This gives new impetus to the participants' own private dramas, while Anna too experiences a sort of 'comeback' for which she is not quite prepared.
