The main character of the story is a programmer. We come to know his name only in the end of the film. He isolates himself from life and defends his small world with rules which seem convenient to his way of life. He is not involved in life at all. His illusionary independence seems to be comfortable for him. His life is trouble-free. He has perspectives for the future. Accidentally he becomes unable to manage himself according to his will. His life goes the way opposite to the one that he likes: he becomes absolutely dependable on everyone. He is helpless against the troubles and acts under the circumstances.
