Plot synopsis
The vibrant and carefree life of four friends comes to an end after a mad night and a meeting with the "whore". The festive enchantment unexpectedly turns into a morning-after drama. Waking up in someone else's apartment, they find the dead "whore" on the floor. "Everything's over", says one of the heroes, without suspecting that it's only just begun... The director leads the spectator into a theatre of absurdity. "The Whore" is a film in the genre of a black comedy, where each hero is a collective image of the modern generation. The first is an egocentric, the most widespread type; the second is a non-hero; the third is a rapper who has turned to religion; and the fourth is a victim of circumstance.
