A boy on a crowded bus feels the urgent need to urinate, and gets off in the middle of the city in order to fulfill this need. But the restrooms of every building he enters are locked. There are countless people on the streets of a cold, mechanical city, and none of them pay much attention to the desperate boy and at that moment, we realize that the city is created without even the basic human needs in mind, and we realize that hypocrisy and greed are the basis on which the city is truly founded. The film reveals the greed and hypocrisy of society, which we are desensitized to, being members of that society.
The film metaphorically shows the alienation and consequent despair of man in the cold and mechanized modern city. It brings out the true strong points of the short film through its dynamic cinematography and editing.
