Like many others, Daniil has decided to leave his native Georgia and move to Prague in search of better pay. Originally a teacher, he finds a job with Ukrainian laborers controlled by a Russian boss called Sergei and thus becomes a cog in the machinery that takes advantage of the work of illegal immigrants. One day he is unexpectedly given a promotion, but this only increases his sense of desperation, caught in a situation that is difficult to escape from. He would like to return home, but the lack of freedom at work and a budding relationship with the nurse Julia make this step increasingly more complicated… Vinland looks at the lives of people whose labor we rely on but about whom we know so little because their identities disappear the moment they relinquish their passports to the mafia who are interested only in profit.
