EMMA, DEAR BÖBE / ÉDES EMMA, DRÁGA BÖBE
Emma and Böbe, two country-girls, have been teaching Russian at a primary school in Budapest. After the end of socialism, they have to change the classes over to English as quick as they can. Because they cannot afford their own apartments, they share a room in a residence for teachers. To improve their economic situation, Emma works as a cleaning-woman; Böbe fishes for foreigners in hotel-bars, hoping they will buy her a dinner. Emma and Böbe find themselves in a fight for their existence. Unwilling to loose the social status they have achieved during the old regime, they fight in order not to become what they used to be: country-girls.
