Õilis, kuid omakasupüüdlik plaan satub aga ootamatult ohtu ning Salmonitel tuleb leida lahendus, kuidas pöörasest olukorrast võitjana väljuda.

It appears that it must have been one of the worst days in her life: an aching shoulder, being late for work, a diagnosis by her doctor, and, as a result of it all, an evening in the pub where she realises that you can be as neat and good as you like, but you still need luck… The man who Viivi finds between the sheets in Andres, nearing 50s, an affable bloke prone to mishaps, and a man who cannot say "no".
