    Two women, mother and daughter, live on the sunny Portuguese coast. They have relished the ‘good life’ with ample pleasure and a total absence of work. Now, however, they have one big problem. Their wealth has run out. How do they now cope with a life of poverty after having been born into wealth? How do they manage to find a job and keep it, when nobody in the family has ever worked? And who is to blame now that the sweet and dreamy life has turned into a nightmare? 

    The Good Life won the Best Documentary Award at Karlovy Vary Film Festival in 2011.
