A psychological drama of loss and unfulfilled potential. The narrative explores innocence and wisdom, hope and regret through, what seems to be, an ordinary conversation between two strangers, a man and a boy who meet at a bus stop. The story unfolds through a fragmented narrative and distorted time line blurring the lines between dreams, reality and memory.
