A lonely composer commits suicide in front of his computer web camera. The whole “big” event, as one of the neighbors calls death of his neighbor, starts when Aca enters the deceased apartment after he heard the gun shot. He reveals the dead neighbor lying on the floor and became “the first witness”. Therefore, he stays in the apartment to wait for the police but, as the time goes by, many other neighbors start to interfere. Whole time recorded by a webcam, which they are not aware of. While waiting and to shorten the time, they drink, eat and play chess. Evoke memories of him, pity him, praise his music even though they can not remember his name. Since the traffic jam prolongs police arrival, they witness many unusual “comers” including the undertaker, the real estate agent along with the apartment buyer, pizza delivery guy and medical officials. In the thrilling and effective dialogue they welcome police and forensic officers who reveal the fact of working web camera. From that moment until the end of the “small gathering” the situation and relations between surprised randomly assembled group became different under the pressure of camera and need to justify previous statements and actions as well as a broader, satirical picture of our society.
