Storyline

A man, forced to sacrifice interaction with his family for the sake of success at work, invites his mother to a restaurant, to take a break from the hustle, chat with a loved one and, finally, to get out of his state of permanent stress. But everything goes wrong at once: his mom cannot figure out the menu, and his phone is torn from work calls.
