Sandra Mets (Mari Abel) is a doctor of physics who has worked as a scientist for many years. However, one day she unexpectedly loses her position and is forced to re-enter the labour market. As an established personality, jumping from a lonely laboratory into a pulsating outside world is a kind of an adventure. Various characters and interesting events help her to ease the anxious grip on life and lead her closer to inner liberation. Sandra faces challenges that she has not chosen for herself. Or who knows, maybe these are the challenges she subconsciously needed?

This is the first feature film by director Kaupo Kruusiauk (“Viimane vürst”), who has previously dedicated his professional time to documentaries and short films.

“Sandra Gets a Job” participated in Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event Works in Progress presentation in 2018.
