This comedy is a story about a successful veterinary surgeon,almost 60, who tries to find a decent and painless way out of his marriage where he feels like a beast trapped in a cage. After the suicide of his father-in-law, who faced the same issues with his wife, Jan wants to control his own life again. His mother-in-law used to decide about everything in her husband’s life and she gets to decide even now, after his death, in good faith that she is doing him a favour. Jan knows very well he is on the same boat. Thisdestructive partnership strategy is his wife’s family inheritance. His wife is also convinced that she is the one in charge of their happiness. Jan is aware of the fact that if he leaves it as it is he will meet his father-in-law fate. So he keeps testing more and more peculiar methods to liberate himself and bring back his real self. The road he eventually decides to take is quite absurd,adventurous and very uncomfortable.
