The power plant is closing - unemployment takes over a town in eastern Slovakia. Ágoston, a tall, family man in his fifties ventures through eastern Europe in desperate attempt to get a job and fulfil his dream - to catch a big fish. In Baltic, he finds himself alone and deserted. His voyage leads him deeper and deeper into the ocean of bizarre events and encounters, with tall friendly woman, Russian friend with unfriendly intentions, and sad stuffed earless rabbit. Waves grind on sandy beaches and return to sea. New wave comes to wipe off the preceding one. The sea doesn’t end here and it definitely doesn’t start here.
