A director is working on a new film. The acclaimed actor he wants for the role of the father criticises the quality of the script and his choice for the role of the son. The director invites the actor cast for the role of son to join him on the island of Vis so they can work together on the script and on the character he is supposed to play. The director wants to find out if he made a good choice in casting him. Due to the island’s isolation during winter, the two of them are unexpectedly faced with their own frustrations, which intertwine with the film’s plot in a strange way.
