In a remote Bulgarian town, Gana looks after the elderly with dementia, while trafficking their ID cards on the black market of identity theft. Nothing seems to have consequences on the nurse’s conscience, not even the incidental murder of a patient, who threatens to expose her fraudulent dealings. Things start to shake up when Gana hears the music of Yoan, a new patient, whose ID card she has trafficked. A growing empathy for the old man unlocks Gana’s drugged-up conscience, and she is ready for change. But when Yoan is arrested for fraud, she learns that doing "the right thing" comes at a high price.
