Fraulein is a 2006 German film directed by Andrea Staka. The film's storyline focuses on a woman named Ruza (Mirjana Karanovic). Ruza left her native country of Serbia 30 years ago and now lives in Zurich. Her daily life is a series of boring and repetitive moments. She operates a cafeteria that she owns and lives a dull life without joy. Ruza's best friend is a waitress at the cafeteria named Mila (Ljubica Jovic). Mila is a joyful woman who, like Ruza, also emigrated to Zurich many years ago. Unlike Ruza, she dreams of one day returning to the country of her birth and retiring on the Croatian coast. Ruza's organized life is given a shock when a young woman named Ana arrives at the cafeteria looking for work. Ana is hired for the job and her spirited and impulsive nature soon injects life into Ruza's dull world. The two women develop an incredibly close relationship and change each other's lives in ways that they could never have imagined.moreless
