6-year-old Stefek challenges Providence. He believes that the provoked series of small events will allow him to get closer to his father who abandoned his mother for another woman. Stefek’s sister, 17-year-old Elka, teaches him how to bribe the fate with little gifts. But in a defining moment the children have nothing valuable to sacrifice. In his game with the fate, Stefek decides to dangerously rise the stake.
