After his mother's death, Dzintars Bumbiers (34) struggles with the large collection of dahlias he has inherited from her. Dzintars's mother had dedicated most of her life to her collection. Dzintars made a promise that he would keep caring for them, but in reality the dahlias hide his contempt. Dzintars considers the commitment to the dahlias is the reason his mother left her sons aside as they were growing up. As a result, two of his brothers have died, while Dzintars can't start relationships with women. He takes refuge in computer games. But what will happen to the dahlias?
