A seemingly trivial situation: A son goes for a walk with his father. But, the son is in his forties, living his own life. The father is over 70. The only thing these two men seem to have in common is that they go for a walk together once a month. With brilliantly executed dialogue, the history of the 20th century and all its absurdities are revealed in front of our eyes. The deepest areas of human relationships are uncovered. The relationship between a father and son has never been described in such an interesting way: Two grown-up men who respect, hate, and love each other, all at once. There is nothing extreme about it, but it is something intimately familiar to anyone who has lived long enough to be able to talk with their fathers in middle age. The destinies of both the protagonists clash, mingle, and, immediately afterwards, move away by centrifugal force. For a moment, they are friends, for a moment a father and son, and for a moment, they are complete strangers…
