Movie synopsis: Vincentas is an experienced ambulance technician, awarded several times as the best one at his workplace – with a sponsor's mug. Vincentas is also a gambler troubled by debts, and all the races, cards and matches are not enough. He thus starts a game where the paramedics bet weekly on which of the patients won't survive. The worse the injury, the higher chance of winning. Vincentas keeps the pool and determines the exchange rate, just like with his favored dog races. The dynamic thriller with social aspects is dominated by the charismatic Vytautas Kaniusonis in the leading role, together with an intense soundtrack by The Bus, and a completely realistic portrayal of the ambulance environment.
