Oleg is approaching 30 and as a doctor spends his working life saving lives. He takes far less care of his own life, often drinking too much after exhausting shifts. The marriage to his wife Katya, who works in A&E, has more lows than highs. One day, she announces she wants a divorce. The only problem is that until Oleg finds a new place they will both have to get by together in their tiny apartment. With a mix of absurd humour and directorial meticulousness, the film examines the arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat, of a tense relationship.
