ABOUT THE MOVIE. The slow life of the provincial seaside town of N is suddenly interrupted with a local scandal that unfolds around a deceased man. Only his wife and friend know about his burial place, but they refuse to reveal it. That was the last will of the deceased, an eccentric man in love with the sea. Each of the heroes seeks answers to their own questions in society, in others, and, therefore, does not find them. The feeling of anxiety is spilled under the sun. Something is about to happen.
