A deputy-chief engineer from an industrial factory, Giorgi Meskhi, becomes an accidental witness to the murder of a famous goalkeeper. Affected deeply by what he saw, it infects him like a virus, until eventually becoming his obsession. Absorbed by everything connected with crime, he studies the faces of criminals, as if trying to solve some kind of a mystery. Being a ‘nobody’, he commits a series of actions in an attempt to become 'somebody, but who? A murderer?
