An ambitious young chief of room (Valentin Popescu) tries to renew the atmosphere of a restaurant located inside a luxury hotel. Inexplicably, his initiatives wake the opposition of his superiors. But penetrating the depth of relations between people involved in this plot comes to light an insidious fabric of lies that prevent the development of a normal life and flourishing. The location of filming was Casa Poporului (Palace of the Parliament now), the giant building from Bucharest.
