For the first time in his life, Miro spends the night with a prostitute, which someone sends to his hotel room after a night out with his business partners. But after sex, he finds the girl dead in the bathroom. A successful, happily married father of two will cover up the incident with the help of two hotel employees, who then start asking for small favours at first, but then increasingly large ones. The participants in his crime become indispensable companions in his life, which will never be the same again. “The only constant in the two countries in which I lived have been the arrogance, primitivism and violence dominating and determining almost all the rules of society. … That was the impulse to write this story.”
