Seemingly a usual social drama that could happen to any of us. Undisturbed and with minimum details it tries to tell a painful way of confrontation with personal defeat and own shame. A ride as a metaphor of repentant, lost individual on the threshold of middle ages that has bowed to own as well as to expectancies of others and is looking for a chance for a new beginning to reach the ideal he had

Seemingly a usual social drama that could happen to any of us. Undisturbed and with minimum details it tries to tell a painful way of confrontation with personal defeat and own shame. A ride as a metaphor of repentant, lost individual on the threshold of middle ages that has bowed to own as well as to expectancies of others and is looking for a chance for a new beginning to reach the ideal he had in his youth and has been outwitted by the inexorable reality and youthful frivolousness. The story is the following of a personal fight where the hero endeavours to regain the confidence of his closest and above all self-confidence in order to satisfy the image he created for others about himself. The most difficult is someone else’s burden and the ideal reflection of an individual that loses and fails somewhere on the way do the closest. To reach this "corrigendum" he needs to do something else.
