A visual experiment featuring two of the characters of the Avant-garde writer Urmuz, this unconventional documentary is composed of scraps of memories of the people who are currently living on the street where the author used to live, Apolodor Street, followed by two of his absurd stories, shaped in a state of fiction around its two main characters, Stamate and Ismail.
