One night, a high-profile attorney is found on the pavement along a main road through Ljubljana. He is barely conscious, lying in a pool of blood, and covered in dog bites. Doctors at the medical center fight to keep him alive while his wife confronts her deepest fears, as she ties to understand the situation and to salvage their social and financial status. In this taut drama, lead actress Pia Zemljič excels in the role of the resourceful wife as she breaks every moral standard she has stood up for in her life.
