An uneventful life of Giorgi Meskhi, a 28-year-old deputy-chief engineer from an industrial town, turns upside down when he accidentally witnesses a murder of the famous goalkeeper. He attends the funeral and while trying to stay unnoticed, spies on the wife and daughter of the deceased. After returning home he attempts to call the police but hangs up upon hearing the voice of the officer. From day to day, he keeps returning to the crime scene as the murder infects him like a virus, until eventually becoming his obsession. Absorbed by everything connected to the crime, he studies the faces of the criminals, as if trying to solve a mystery. He seems to be obsessed with more than the murder he witnessed.
