What happens when a friend entrusts a (yet) unsuccessful cartoonist of erotic comics with a gun and a bag of cocaine? Jani Bevek, the choleric but loving father of three-year-old Simon and the husband of the patient Maja, is captured by a carousel of everyday, as well as completely surreal adventures, until the predictably unpredictable end.
