A man in his fourties meets regularly with an amateur intimacy surrogate in order to get over an experience in his past. As the girl wants more out of their relationship, he’s forced to make a choice.
Iosif, a man in his fourties waits in his clean, white apartment. He’s visited by Vera (26), an attractive woman who behaves seductively towards him. He does whatever she asks him, so she feels comfortable enough that they can sleep together. However, Iosif has some problems from a previous relationship and sleeping and touching are the only things he’s interested in – no sex, no relationship. As Vera tries to get more out of their encounters, she realizes she’s hitting a brick wall and tells him she wants to move on. He doesn’t do anything to prevent that and even though the girl is not serious and she comes back the next night, he doesn’t answer the door.
