As long as nothing happens, everything is fine. One might think so. Alina’s relationship with her ill mother Eva “works” as does her relationship with her boyfriend, the policeman David. A reencounter with ex-boyfriend Luka evokes long past memories and when Eva’s tobacconist’s shop is demolished, past and present are mixed. The construction site (of life) is entered. Painful memories are shared, conflicts erupt and yet are not resolved. The characters spin in circles, each for themselves and all lost together.
