A young scout is killed by a stray bullet during a hunting expedition involving prominent political figures. Pressured to wrap up the case, the intelligence service coaxes ailing lawyer Marus Steiner to serve as a fixer. Steiner's clean-up job brings him into the orbit of several characters, an idealist minister fighting the privatisation of water, the grieving family of the victim, an independent journalist, and a crude cop, all seeking to conceal or expose the truth.

When my friend, screenwriter Marek Leščák, and I started talking about the new film, I kept saying that power is the most interesting subject in the world. We invented the story later. What interests me the most about the film is the dilemma of whether it makes sense to "clean up" a small disaster to prevent a bigger one.” (Mátyás Prikler)
