It’s November in a small eastern European town. A middle-aged blue-collar worker is renting a room in his flat to a young single mother and her son. The man is searching for ways to get closer to her, but all his efforts are in vain. One night he brings home a bottle of champagne and tries to surprise her by offering to let her stay with him for free. When things don’t go to plan, the scene turns to one of psychological violence.
