Todor is in his early thirties and he still lives with his mother. Everyday she cooks for him, irons his shirts, washes him and watches TV with him in her arms. She sets all the rules: their everyday life is set by rituals and recurring patterns. Todor works in an open space. His life is perfect until the day he comes home late for the first time ever, after an office party.
