A merry-melancholic kaleidoscope of a crisis in which four time frames expertly and startlingly communicate with each other. Tamás‘ soul is in tatters. His girlfriend Anna has left him. The 33-year old returns to Budapest and moves back in with his parents. He falls pray to self-pity and brooding on himself, his life in general and love in particular. It doesn’t matter whether it’s meeting old friends or brainstorming for advertising campaigns with which he earns his living – Tamás‘ thoughts keep drifting off to when he was 7, 14 and 17. Slowly, he begins to understand where his feeling of confusion comes from.
