Writer-director Kaupo Kruusiauk is now working on his second feature, following his debut film, The Last Prince (2018), which was a documentary revolving around popular actor and musician Peeter Volkonski. Kruusiauk’s new project, a psychological drama entitled Sandra Gets a Job, is currently in post-production.

The story, penned in its entirety by the director himself, centres on a young Doctor of Physics, called Sandra, who unexpectedly loses her job in an interest research group. Getting a new job seems simple at first glance, but after a few failures, Sandra starts to feel ever more acutely that she is unemployed. Every new attempt to find a job is increasingly humiliating for her, and moreover, she is forced to hide her failure from her successful parents, who also work in the world of science.
