A young man decides to start a fresh chapter in his life. Having worked as a contractor on a newly built, gated estate, he now rents a flat there himself, cutting himself off from his old life in a run-down tenement house with his mother and her need for medical care. But the new reality quickly puts all his illusions to bed. If he wants to change, he will first have to tackle all the baggage from his past. Will he hesitate before leaping over the wall?
