The chief protagonist of the film is Tamás, a 30-year-old cello teacher. He is the best of grandchildren, the best of husbands. His daughter is to be born today. He will be the best of fathers. But then a crazy chance comes and fatally disrupts his life. A girl: beautiful, blonde, upredictable. Panni. "Be careful: I'm Scorpio, you're Gemini, The Scorpio eats up the Gemini for breakfast!" - Panni warns the young man. But Tamás is not careful. Never again. At this point time is out of joint, five years, a few minutes, the story of an undying love. Wild partings, strange, mysterious disappearances, wonderful crazy things, passions and happy encounters. A love that increasingly pushes Tamás's family to the fringe of his life; his wife and daughter run off to Australia, the grandmother dies of sorrow... There is no happy end, this love becomes a mania, a fate... "Our life races like an express train," Tolstoi once said. "And the whole is only a minute. If it were not for a sharp bend at times, a sudden jerk, we would not even notice that we were living..."
