The disclosure of a multi-million fraud shakes up a family firm. Ivo Róna, head of both the family and the business, takes charge of the investigation. In his pursuit of profits, this aging patriarch battles with weakened health and the distrust of his friends and family. His investigation also uncovers insincere relationships and deep loneliness. Director Olmo Omerzu has created a curt and razor-sharp analysis of a social system that spurs people towards a stubborn self-destructive desire for power and possessions.
