Alex is a somewhat neurotic person, in his thirties. He has a strong bond with his mother and his life spins out of control, when she is admitted to a hospital. Alex sees the hospital as a grotesque zoo, full of bizarre figures and unexpected events. Alex is trying to pull himself together in this new situation, but being surrounded by people full of good intentions, he is slowly becoming paranoid. As his mother is gradually recovering, he makes mistake after mistake, and each of such mistakes is full of best intentions...
The film by Adrian Sitaru was based on his personal experiences, although it is filled with surreal and absurd scenes.
