Paolo Bressan spends his days at Gustino’s, who runs a tavern in a small village close to Gorizia. A 40 year old misfit, cynical and misanthropic, a true drinking professional and a compulsive liar, who 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 year 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.
