A woman goes to the unemployment office to apply for benefits. According to the official who attends to her, she doesn’t meet the criteria, so they cannot give her the money she is claiming. What was a mere formality becomes a nightmare, since the woman’s subsistence completely depends on that money and she is not willing to leave without a solution. This puts the official in a situation where she is torn between regarding the woman as just a number, or seeing the woman as a human being in need of her help.
