To hell with the seasons of the year and all the years and all the life, they and the whole world can all be buried with me in the black grave and we’ll be done with the unfunniest comedy I’ve ever seen and which is known as my life.

A bitter romantic comedy about three acquaintances - each a member of a different medical insurer - reunited in old age: Pogoralca, who shifts between total rejuvenation and deep, terminal despondency; Haichik, a rejected suitor with seniority and small testicles; and Bonbonelle, a powerful lover smelling of cognac and cigarettes.
Their conversations revolve around disease, pain and pills. They sail to distant realms where they meet, among others, a blonde Colonel from the Marines, an African-American from Alabama, and God disguised as a large bird with huge buttocks and an egg-shaped soul. They open old wounds, argue, appease, long for a little love and warmth, and try to help one another come to terms with the inevitable, let God do the job for them, and end it all on time.
