Synopsis Thomas returns home due to the death of his mother and, in addition to meeting again with his past, he also inherits a debt that leaves him in a lurch. After a dishonourable discharge from the army in Irak, there are not many options left for him. A chance encounter brings him to help a man, Ali, whose car has run aground in the river. Ali, very grateful, employs him in his chain of restaurants where he quickly becomes his right hand man and discerns his redemption. But things become complicated when Thomas meets Ali’s wife, Laura, with whom he shares a serious attraction and a debt that continues to stigmatize his life. There are people for whom disaster looms in the corner, barely five minutes before knowing that providence had a gift up its sleeve for them.
