Like modern times' Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, Sam and Jonathan, two travelling salesmen peddling novelty items, take us on a kaleidoscopic wandering through human destinies. This film consists of everyday and out of the ordinary stories portraying our existence in its grandeur and pettiness, beauty and tragedy, exaggeration and sadness... - with a panoramic view, as if told by a bird reflecting on human condition. The pigeon is astonished by humans, their activities, follies, prides and all this agitation, the meaning of which it seeks to understand. The film creates a tension between the banal and the essential, the comic and the tragic - to show the dialectic and dynamic nature of existence, while shaping the thought that mankind is potentially heading towards apocalypse, but also that the outcome is in our hands.
