Milan Kundera is shrouded in mystery. He has not given an interview in 30 years and doesn't appear in public, so we must learn about him from his work. His essays and philosophical discussions within his novels reveal a lot. Besides other, the film will ask: What in Kundera's work got him the status of a legendary author? What is so unique about his books? Helping us craft the story-line is a student who has a fantastic opportunity to do an interview with Kundera. After weeks of waiting in a cafe outside Kundera's house, reading his novels, the student soon starts to identify with some of the author's ideas. Through this, we are able to learn more about the message of Kundera's work, how and why his stories still move us and compel us not only to think about the protagonist, but about ourselves.

Agatha, 74 years old, and Leonidas, 36, maintain an absorbing mother-son relationship: Agatha never fell in love again and Leonidas does not dare to build a life outside the doors of the family home.

The only possible solution after having cut off all ties with the outside world for fear of giving explanations, will be to call Elisa, Agatha's 38-year-old other daughter, who despite having become independent a long time ago, will return to the family home to repair wounds that remain open.
