Synopsis
A stranger comes to a local bar, where the guys from local betting shop hang on a daily basis. The stranger leaves a box there, asking them to keep it for him without opening it. However, curiosity forces the guys to open it. When the stranger catches them red-handed, the situation gets complicated. While audience has no doubts that the guys are doing a wrong thing, they, too, are curious at the same time. The fact that the ‘bad guys’ in the film are driven by the same urge the viewer puts the viewer in an ambivalent position.
