    “Precarity meets high snobiety against the backdrop of the Austrian housing market, guided by karma, fate, and financial possibilities, and engineered by a pseudo-bourgeois con man and a rich but desolate girlfriend. With no-budget charm and wit, sophisticated characters, trenchant dialogues, satirical socio-critical commentary, and bitter plot twists, Sebastian Brauneis tells of a tenancy in which the law does not equate with justice.”
