A young physiotherapist, Gana, lives in a poor town, where she earns a living by assisting the elderly — and supplements her meagre income by selling her patients’ ID cards on the black market. She’s stuck in a loveless relationship, and her existence seems to mirror that of the town itself: a life cycle deprived of beauty and desire by post-Communist survivalism. A glimmer of hope arrives in Gana’s new-found companionship with Yoan, an elderly patient. Desensitized and disconnected by their harsh environment, they gradually find solace in each other’s company.
