When faced with formidable odds, these truth-seekers discover that the ultimate battle is waged within their own minds and, to win a sense of peace, they must out-maneuver themselves. 

80-year-old retiree Arthur lives in a modest council home in Vienna where he cares for his seriously ill wife Martha, with only female nurses assisting him. As he finds Fabiu, the new male Hungarian care worker, on his doorstep, his routine is broken. But soon the two men become closer and inside Arthur feelings of desire and suppressed longing start to rise.
