A room, a bed, a tired man. The finger on the trigger. The gun to his temple. The firing pin slams into the void - Apparently, its time has not yet come. Yet Ian no longer wants to live. This old Russian clown, lost in a shabby hotel, thought he had reached the end of his path. A shooting resounds in the hallway. A man rushes into Ian's room and collapses, dead, on his bed. A moment later, his pursuers burst into the room. The old clown turns his revolver over to defend himself. A survival reflex, but also the starting point for a long chase. Ian wanted to die, but the danger seemed to give him the strength to fight back. And then now he's not alone. He must also save the skin of Lucas, a young priest who took him in after finding him injured in the street. Soon the trap closes on the two fugitives. But the clown's smile is not always innocent.
