Hoping for change, Ema (Jana Plodková) leaves her family and womanizing husband. She hides at the apartment of her gay hairdresser Tony (Ondrej Nosálek), whom she barely knows. They are merely two strangers connected by their mutual effort to escape from their families. Their liberating friendship teeters on becoming a love affair. This “love story” centers on two people and their attempts to escape the trap of their own desires of belonging to somebody.
