The story begins when Daniel has a heart attack, and his doctor prohibits him from returning to work. He applies for sickness benefits but encounters a complex and unforgiving social security system that seems to not understand his situation. The bureaucratic labyrinth forces him to navigate through many difficult obstacles to get the support he needs.
At the same time, he meets Katie, a single mother with two children, who are also at the mercy of the system. Daniel and Katie form a strong friendship, helping each other survive with their difficulties.
