Mr. Lazarescu is a 63-year-old man who shares his apartment with his three cats. Suffering from pains in his head and stomach he calls an ambulance and whilst he waits, asks his neighbours for some pills. Though they disapprove of his heavy drinking and the state of his home, they try their best to help.  Hindered by a major bus accident, the medics eventually arrive and so begins a long and increasingly frustrating night.
