SYNOPSIS
Gábor is an office cleaner. Wearing overalls
and a baseball hat, he seems insignificant.
Working on the night shift, Gábor rarely has

any contact with his employers, yet he learns
everything about them by thoroughly analyzing
their garbage. Since he is almost invisible,
nobody suspects that Gábor is, in fact, a con
man who carefully chooses his victims by the
trash they leave behind. His targets are mostly
disillusioned, lonely women. In a few months

he destroys all their romantic illusions by taking
all their savings. Having an unusually high IQ
and an ability to assume various personalities,
Gábor is an expert in manipulation. When he
gets a job at a psychologist’s office, Gábor
meets Hanna, an injured dancer who happens
to be the daughter of a millionaire. Insecure

and vulnerable, Hanna seems to be the perfect
victim. Gábor pretends to be a doctor who can
cure her body and her soul, an irresistible offer
for a desperate woman. Everything goes
according to plan until Gábor falls in love with
Hanna and has to make a hard decision
between her and the money.
