Peter is a professional sound studio engineer who suffers from the very rare disease - the Tourrette Syndrome - expressed with, among other things, uncontrolled shouting of dirty words and nasty phrases. This is a tragicomedy movie story about a man who struggles with their own limitations, about his search for relations with the other man.
