Filip, a sophisticated university professor, goes with his wife to a spa hotel on the coast. After a couple of days spent in the comfy, monotonous ambiance of the hotel, their seemingly ideal marriage is over. Filip is left by his wife, and he returns to the city. A series of situations seems to indicate that his life is collapsing, but Filip, refined and armed with confidence, faces each new circumstance in his life with unusual ease. Filip’s escape from problems leads him to a small mountain village deep in the forest, where he meets his mother and falls in love with a girl that once was a snake. His own fairytale that will break him down and change him, but also give him a chance for a new beginning.
