Tristan has a dream that will make him a fortune: dollhouses – a perfect world for everybody. But when he tells his mother, a famous, extroverted former actress in sexploitation films, about his new business plan, she hits the roof. She can’t believe even he could come up with such an idiotic scheme. Tristan is deeply disappointed. He has always felt overshadowed by his mother, but this last insult is too much for him to bear. It turns out that he doesn't have to. Because soon afterwards he meets Josip – and Josip is a contract killer . . .
