Shot from the subjective viewpoint of someone supposedly pushing a bicycle, we see various street scenes from the local bazaar. Goods on sale and people coming and going. Suddenly, there’s a street fight and images jump to new dimensions of fantasy. A fun film with effective use of sound.

[Director’s Statement] Sometimes, we unintentionally pass by the many things that face us in daily life. My film is about these subjects which sometimes seem to be very simple. By making this film, I tried to provide a different look to these people, their jobs, and their problems.
