Movie synopsis: The feature debut of the scriptwriter and director Juris Kursietis tells the universal story of a young man who must face the harsher side of life. Modris is seventeen, he lives only with his mother and he likes gambling. So much so, that he steals his mother's heating. She decides to teach him a lesson and calls the police. Thus begins his rapid fall, all the way to the bottom, seemingly depicted through a series of injustices and spite. Yet only Modris' obstinate passivity and apathy to the world around him are to blame, together with his disinterest in the problems of others. The ostensibly clinical and cold camera uses an original approach to the depth of the shots, complementing the naturalist drama with an artistic dimension.
