    • Synopsis
    • Reuben and Michal, a couple in their forties, decided not to have any children. When Michal unexpectedly gets pregnant, Reuben, feeling cheated and enraged, accidentally runs over a seeing-eye dog. His guilt feelings push him into a complicated relationship with a blind man, the dog's owner. Anna, a young single mother, and her ten-year-old son, are thrown out of their rented apartment. In her feeling of despair, Anna resorts to prostitution. A relationship with Matti, an arms dealer in his forties, seems to offer an opportunity to return to normalcy, but turns out to be fraught with disaster. Kagan, a solitary and introverted radio technician, meets Robinson, an aging rocker who was a member of his father's punk band. Robinson enters Kagan's life and shakes his perception of himself.
