Laurent meets the woman he is having an affair with, Milena, in the shopping center but his rival Slavor screws up the day. Irritated by the guys’ fighting, Milena disappears. A brief moment of fraternization drives the two rejected men into a brothel, but their desire to distract themselves ends in loneliness. Matter-of-fact, unspectacular, dull: an atmospheric “emotional picture” of real life … in the transitory nowhere.
