An encounter between two married couples from the opposite ends of the social scale, which, at first glance, seem to have nothing in common. An accident and a tragic event bring them together fatefully in a single night and most likely until the rest of their lives.

Director's statement

The world we're living in is a world in deadlock. We're stuck in some kind of civilizational standstill from which it is impossible to escape without mutual understanding and respect for basic human and humanist values.
