Sophisticated university professor Filip goes on vacation with his wife. After a few days spent in the pleasant and monotonous atmosphere of the hotel spa, their seemingly ideal marriage ends. Filip’s life seems to be falling apart, but armed with self-confidence, he accepts each new situation in life with unusual ease. Running away from his problems, he stumbles into a small village and deep forest, where he will meet his mother and fall in love with a girl who once was a snake.
