A happily married couple strikes up an unlikely friendship with a man whose life has been marked by chaos and violence. Alex is a small-time criminal who after a stint in prison finds himself working for Konecny, a pimp who runs a grimy brothel. Unbeknownst to Konecny, Alex is also involved with Tamara, one of his whores. Wanting to make some quick cash, Alex robs a bank in a nearby small town and hides out in a farm owned by his grandfather. Alex tries to keep a low profile while waiting for Tamara to join him in the country, and he?s assailed by boredom and despair, but his mood brightens when he strikes up a friendship with Susanne, a cheerful and generous woman who lives nearby. But Alex?s new friend happens to be married to Robert, a member of the local police force.
