Two university students trying their luck as escorts. Day and night
Lea and Hanna, university students in Vienna, need jobs to make some money on the side. They could always wait tables?but call girls earn more.
"Come on, baby!" A man photographs a half-naked woman as she poses seductively on a bed. His instructions leave no doubt in the observer\\\'s mind: The photographs are intended to arouse desire for her body. Afterward they fill out a questionnaire. "What flowers you like?" She doesn\\\'t answer, except with an eager smile. "I\\\'ll just write roses."
The man\\\'s name is Mario (Philipp Hochmair), and he will hire Lea (Anna Rot) and Hanna (Magdalena Kronschläger). Mario runs a small escort service and wants to make some easy money by selling sex. That\\\'s what Lea and Hanna want too. And they\\\'re a little curious about the whole thing. Two young women from the country, friends since their childhood who came to study at Vienna\\\'s university. In the big city. A place of adventure. Why shouldn\\\'t a student work as a call girl? As long as it\\\'s her choice, and just for the money, and maybe the thrills too. As long as there\\\'s no coercion involved.
Lea and Hanna are best friends and share a small apartment. A toss of the coin decides: They\\\'ll work as escorts. "And if it stops being fun, we can wait tables," says Hanna. Of course, they\\\'ll earn a lot more working for the escort service, though the job\\\'s demanding in a much different way. "If one of us stops liking it, we\\\'re both quitting." Hanna\\\'s the quiet one, she\\\'s more introverted than her friend. "Right," says Lea, "we\\\'re in this together."
