In this tragi-comic testimony to the need for a choice at the crossroads of maturity, the main character, an emotional artist, keeps thinking about himself and the purpose of his life. Hiding his helplessness, he finds his life without a goal or responsibilities. Later on, he realizes that the quality of life and experience depends on unwritten rules and higher principles.
J. Jakubisko: “My debut about the years when the Universe stops revolving around the crucified illusions of the young who lose their breath while maturing.”
