Ofka (25) works the nightshift behind the counter at a 24-hour shop. She doesn’t reflect much upon herself, living with the attitude that she should hide inside herself the uncertainty and despair she feels from failed relationships. All she has left is lethargy and a peculiar kinship she shares with others who, like her, are awake when the rest of us sleep. Mira, the only person who she truly loved, has started dating her good friend. Ofka is still in love with him and, because of this, treats her old friend Ubr, who is in love with her, mercilessly. In a flash, as Ofka finds herself the victim of a bizarre robbery, the world falls apart before her eyes, and is suddenly full of confusion and pain. Still, only waking from her lethargy can help Ofka understand the truth about herself and eventually give her back the courage to finally pursue her dreams.
