family, mistress and does not know what a new life brings him. The only thing he brings with him to his new apartment are his old books,

but some are missing. But there’s a notebook with a list of debtors of his books. He starts looking for those people and books.

When He loses his job in the national museum, the socially lost Sado has the only foothold in his friendship with

an old conceptual artist Jusuf who sells a emptiness in his gallery. There is a student Maja who lives in his building and to whom he pays for sex.

People linking to the books he searches for in different ways are dying. It all becomes one very intricate story in which the circle of the dead expands.

Inspector Zlatko is investigating the case, and Sado, although not guilty, is slowly becoming a target.

Whether there is anything worth sacrificing in today's world without ideals and values ​​is a question that hangs over Sado,

but also with the audience in a story that begins as an existentialist drama and ends as a tense neo noir thriller.
