Boris Robic is, as we say, an ordinary kind of bloke. One evening, however, someone tries to shoot him. The investigations reveal nothing. No enemies, no suspects. You could say that Boris is the last person anyone would want to kill. After the police close the investigation, Boris decides to make his own enquiries. As he searches for the suspect, we see the tragi-comedy unfold of a man who discovers that a lot more people hate him than he ever realised, and that the way he sees his own life was an illusion.


The most important thing that I would like to remark regarding the project is that an important intention is to make it funny. It is not exactly a black comedy ÔÇô it is an (existentialist) thriller, dealing with loneliness, fear, suspicion, paranoia, and relativity of life in an absurd and ironical manner. With a tongue-in-cheek, these bitter themes are not so absolute any more. The setting is quite irrational in a way. But on the other hand, it might be a way to show how vulnerable we are if we are not able to trust each other.
