This short film tells the story of Konstantin, a medical student and volunteer paramedic, who slowly opens up in a relationship with young woman, Jeanny. Konstantin is a young man with plenty of hang-ups. His fellow students think he’s a weirdo without a girlfriend. Then one day a young woman with self-destructive tendencies stumbles into his life. Motivated by a combination of savior complex and fascination, Konstantin takes her home. For a while it seems as if two lost souls have found each other. But then Konstantin crosses a line with her and she leaves. Then Konstantin runs into her again. While working as a paramedic he picks her up, once again she’s blind drunk, and he falls into her arms in the ambulance — and lets it happen.
