The forty‐year‐old Paolo, an arrogant man weighing 150 kilos, spends most of his days in the tavern called “Pri Guštinu”. He works as a cook in a retirement home and has molested his ex‐wife persistently for years. Nobody likes his cruel jokes. One day Zoran, Paolo’s eccentric nephew, appears. After the death of Zoran’s aunt only Paolo can take care of the boy as he is the only family Zoran has left. In the tavern Zoran’s uncanny talent for darts is soon revealed and fortune finally seems to smile on Paolo: he wants to take Zoran to a world tournament with a considerable cash prize. However, due to his superficial relationship with his nephew, Paolo fails to take into account the fact that for the first time in his life Zoran will have to face the typical problems experienced by his peers. Will Paolo be able to take care of a special child, who is to become an ordinary boy?
