When a man unexpectedly learns he will become a father, it shakes his whole world. His padlocked emotional world suddenly totters, when he discerns a sensitivity inside he had not known before.
Embrace it or radically reject it? A young man who always managed to keep his feelings at bay, takes the unexpected notification of his approaching fatherhood as a crucial ultimatum. His choice does not only have far-reaching implications for himself, but also for the young woman he has only known for a short time and their unborn child. This puts existential matters on edge in this visually powerful, autobiographically inspired drama.
