Momo, a young footballer, lives with his mother in the poorer neighbourhoods of Bratislava. His father has been gone for a few years and in the meantime his mother has found herself a new man. Momo doesn't get along with his stepfather as he considers him weak and average. Everything changes when Franke, his uncle and an acquaintance of his father’s, arrives. Franke is an authoritative figure; in Momo´s eyes he is all that he himself would like to be. They start spending more time together while Momo´s relationships at home are getting worse. Franke suddenly reveals that his father is returning soon and he will solve everything. But when the father returns, everything is different than expected.
