Around a city square, twelve minutes of real time between 08:48 and 09:00h change the lives of six people, forever. Gunmen JOSH and BART prepare, in their Smart car, to carry out a jewellery heist. To celebrate her 65th birthday, FELICE visits master jeweller WILLIAM to pick up a brooch she has commissioned. Meanwhile, Felice's neighbour JANET furiously cleans her apartment of a failed celebration dinner's remains. But when Janet walks out into the square and runs straight into her lover Marlene, she inadvertently sets off a chain of events. Before any of the six characters can see it coming, their individual actions all collide. And Josh and Bart discover their bullets are powerless when confronted with sunshine, jewels, and love.
