Jan is a highly-regarded plastic surgeon. He has a wife, daughter and a large house with a garden. However, he gives up his job after many years of practice, turns away from the family and his contact with Nature becomes limited to looking through the window in his room. One day, upon returning from a trip, he discovers and three-day pile of newspapers on the doormat and the body of his wife, in the garden. This tragedy starts an eruption of deeply hidden emotions. It brings back memories and his adult daughter Nadia reappears in his life. Jan travels abroad, under the pretext of a business trip.
