Ex-con Tibor works as a bouncer in a club. He has financial difficulties, and because of his vehement nature, he’s always in conflict with his surroundings. He and his wild child daughter have not seen each other for seven years. The twelve-year-old girl lives with her grandparents, who are unable to discipline her. When Niki finds out that Tibor has been released from prison, she finds him, despite being forbidden to do so. The reunion prompts Tibor to face his past and the responsibilities of being a real father.
