The last cowboy has grown old. When he walks through the light broadleaf forest or sits at the kitchen table in his house he is and yet isn’t alone. Around him echo voices of memories, affects are condensed into a halting rock music sound carpet. The agile and flowing camera evokes the demon of the bottle, the demon of alcoholism that once took four friends and devastated a village. But the last cowboy survived. Someone must remain to commemorate the dead.

Toomas, an attractive wolf who meets with many immoral offers, opens a gigolo service after losing his job. After slow beginnings, business is soon flourishing – even a film offer is not long in coming. He keeps it all to himself. And thus imitates his wife, who, instead of Yoga classes, goes to a female empowerment guru called Alexandra Horn-Eye who was suggested to her via Juutub. Their relationship gradually gains momentum.
