On and around the Danube river, a few locals try to eke out a living by fishing. They all dream about finding a fat sturgeon in their nets, whose eggs are worth their weight in gold.

The film follows the two brothers during the barren seasons in their daily worries: the painful awakening after yet another late and drunk night; the careful preparation of the boat and nets; the quarrels with other fishermen about territories; the disappointing catch. The drudgery is occasionally interrupted by a bingo drive in the dirty village centre, where people fill in the numbers while a porn movie plays in the background, or by an absurdist local court session about territories, which leaves unclear who the witness, the accused and the plaintiff is.
