It is a story of Piroska, an obese nurse, who leads a monotonous life and works in one of hospital wards, where death lurks from every corner. Sets on a trip to find Adrienn Pal — a friend of hers from the childhood days. Life will never be the same for Piroska, although the search leads her nowhere. The film reminds us how relative and deceptive our memory can be. We may miss a chance to discover and understand the complex nature of reality, which makes it possible to pay less attention to the way we are perceived by others and accept ourselves more easily.
