Marius is a divorced man in his late thirties. His five year old daughter lives with her mother, her mother’s new husband and parents, much to Marius’ frustration. Every little thing he does is meant to serve one purpose only: to make the intended trip to the seaside with his daughter Sofia come true. Little by little, and despite his attempts to face ever mounting troubles, Marius loses battle after battle — with his parents, his former mother-in-law, his ex wife Otilia, and her new partner. In the end, the balance of power is tilted, and everyone’s cards are laid on the table.
