A young, career-focused politician on his way to a radio-station runs over a man who dies as a consequence. His first ill-considered decision launches a whole sequence of events beyond his control. However, the nightmare which he conceives in his head appears to be possible to overcome. The movie is a story about the omnipresence of conscience.
