Here, Kate meets VIKTOR, a room service waiter, who comes up to her room to explain the hotel’s ‘menu’. The two of them end up spending the night together and fall in love. In the early morning hours, Kate checks out and immediately invites Viktor to move in with her. She now returns to work and lives a happy, if somewhat alcohol-fueled, existence with the enigmatic Viktor, who seems to be harboring problems of his own. After a while, however, Kate’s suicidal tendencies return in full force…
