Released from the sanitarium after a tour of duty in Afghanistan, Sergeant Krists Lapins moves to a run-down apartment in Riga looking to continue his alternative therapy. But his high hopes for a new and rehabilitated life are quickly destroyed one night when he receives an unexpected visitor. Soon enough he finds a startled blonde screaming in his bathroom, a wannabe private detective on his tail and a bankrupt millionaire violently accusing him of having an affair with his wife. This rich dramedy of errors wittily portrays modern Latvian society in an absurd light.
