Herbert is a middle-aged economist who loves his wife, his children, and all animals, but not his job. When he’s made redundant as a result of a recession, he’s suddenly adrift, pining for the life he’s lost even though he never wanted it in the first place. After hiding his unemployment from his family, Herbert is driven by desperation to a series of bad decisions that put those he loves at risk.
