Bony (32) still lives with and works for his reclusive father. He wants a girlfriend, but his unattractive appearance and bipolar disorder diagnosis make this problematic. When he meets striking cellist Zoja, Bony’s life seemingly takes a new direction. Unfortunately, Zoja herself suffers from the inability to establish a commited, sexual relationship and perceives Bony more as a caring mother figure than the masculine guy he desires to be. Bony doesn’t want to see it and his longing for a normal, medication-free life leads to a breakdown. In the end, Bony does not find a relationship with a woman, but with his father, a „big“ history expert, who eventually accepts not only the „small“ history of a family tragedy, but most importantly, his peculiar son.
