A moving and highly naturalistic cinema that attempts to tame death and its inevitable banality, which is part of the natural order of things. The end comes among other matters, quietly, in the middle of various procedures and duties that a director of a residential care home must face. For Doron, it is yet another day. Only the weather seems worse. Someone took his parking spot. The wind broke his umbrella. In addition, the roof is leaking. Some documents need to be signed. A baby daughter was born to one of his employees. Moreover, Bela Schorr has died in room 212.
