This is a film about the dreams of people. We follow four protagonists as they try to fulfill their dreams. An elevator conductor in a hospital dreams of journeying into space. A young farmer dreams of the perfect woman, one that he can choose for himself without the limitations of his village community. While these protagonists dream of escaping their present lives, two others, a young girl, play a very special role: they try to live out their dreams everyday. They hang out on the rooftops of Yerevan and get married with a doll as their pastor. They live free, without any borders, and define their own world. What happens to the dreams of others?
