From the undergrounds of a city, a group of people emerge from the darkness, bodies mingling and intermingling to form one. Wandering the streets of this city where the sky seems clear but the air so dense, everyone wanders according to his own epic stories, with his fears and hopes, with his loves and bitterness, with his rage and his tedium. They are the story we tell.
