In this light-hearted black comedy, a washed out man finds renewed vigour when he coin­ci­den­tally gets hold of a gun. His love for the weapon does not remain without consequences.
The life of evolu­tionary philoso­pher Maarten seems to have grinded to a halt. His dreary exis­tence under­goes a meta­mor­phosis when he witnesses a stick-up with deadly results in a super­market and coin­ci­den­tally ends up with the murder weapon in his hands. The gun now in his posses­sion, his confi­dence returns. But the romance that blooming between him and the weapon cannot remain without conse­quences. The story, peppered with black humour, has an unusual, surprising perspective.
