Olga’s teenage daughter suddenly goes to the hospital. The mother needs to face not only the child’s disease, but also her ex-husband, whom she have not contacted for years. Being together at the hospital – trying to get information about the daughter’s medical condition or playing a family game – reveals difficult emotions and past resentments in the family. As the child’s condition is getting worse, the tension between the ex-partners rises, leading up to the unexpected finale.
