Roman is a top-level cyclist recovering from an injury through hard work and a strict regimen. To improve his performance, he even sleeps in an oxygen tent installed in his bedroom. That is a bitter pill for his wife, Šarlota, whose long-time wish is to conceive a child. And so, both of them exude determination, lose themselves in their obsessions, and improve their bodies to the point where they might even alarm themselves. With each night they spend in the oxygen tent, their relationship changes. Will they be able to catch their breath again in this claustrophobic environment?
