Atrodė kaip apsėstas. Griebė keptuvę ir nudegino man ranką. O kai paklausiau kodėl, pasakė, kad Mergelė Marija jam taip liepusi.

Paolo Bressan spends his days at Gustino’s, who runs a tavern in a small village close to Gorizia. A 40 years old misfit, cynical and misanthropic man, a true drinking professional and a compulsive liar, reluctantly works at a retirement home cafeteria and is still unsuccessfully going after the dream of winning back his ex-wife Stefania. But things are about to change when Zoran shows up: a 15 years old kid with big glasses, whom Paolo ‘inherits’ from a distant Slovenian relative, who speaks in a weird way and seems a little bit retarded.
