Synopsis

In an industrial neighborhood, three friends drink away their cares. Lionel is an engineer who left his country a long ago, but returned because of the economic crisis. Kiril is a bootlegger and Volodea, a plumber. When police raid the pub, the three leave and discover a Gypsy camp where they dare to have their future told. They laugh when an old Gypsy tells them their exact time of death. On the fateful day, the stakes could not be higher; will the Grim Reaper be as merciless as foreseen?
