The events around a family left by their father, whose only trace is an extravagant collection of moths - a “proof” of the countless female hearts he has conquered, are tragic yet entertaining. The mother - Vienna is tirelessly trying, in her odd way, to keep her family from falling apart by stablishing order and moral values to be followed by her children. Theo (13) dreams of following his father’s footsteps and becoming an erotic novelist when he starts doubting his own masculinity.
His sister Andy (18) consciously refuses to speak and communicates solely with her brother through a tablet. On one of her solitary walks, Andy meets and falls in love with Dinko - a young bum, who sees in her an opportunity for a profitable deal. He trades Andy to a Gypsy Baron, only to realise that his heart belongs to her too.
