Johann is a middle-aged man who wants to die. Nothing makes sense to him anymore, not even the bird watching he used to love so much. The problem is he has deeply disappointed the woman he cares about the most – his wife Pierrette. Now, he must suffer through her punishment which he passes on to his new intern Buga, an innocent emigrant from Croatia. Buga becomes Johann’s partner in secret rituals, not aware of the fact that she is actually a victim of a power game in his shaken marriage.
