Plot synopsis
Savely is a misfit, intellectual, and nihilist from the Hood who owns the computer club ‘The Kettle’. He is twenty-five, and he is tired of life. He is bored of drinking, doping, and going with the flow. Savely’s existential crisis deepens after his old friend Roman commits suicide. Why did Roman die and what should Savely do with his own life? Maybe he should do what Roman did? The answers found in the Hood don’t bring any relief but only tear Savely apart. The last hope for him is a mysterious meeting in the City. He believes it can put an end to his rotting in the Hood and help him to break through the boundaries of the old world.
