Show start 17.07.2008

25-year-old Lesha Shultes, a former athlete that had received a serious injury in a car accident, becomes a pickpocket. He lives with his aged mother in a large city. In the mornings he jogs in a park; in the evenings he watches the sports channel on TV. He always buys his groceries at the same store. He doesn’t express his emotions, and none of his acquaintances knows how he makes a living. It is a mystery what is written in the notebook that he carries with him at all times.

His only encounter with human feelings occurs when he finds a video tape of a young woman in the apartment he robbed.... This contact with a stranger’s life leads Shultes to rash decisions.
