"When I was little I used to walk around town, and I often noticed people sitting in booths.
And I asked myself: Why are they sitting there?
Maybe they are serving out some sort of punishment.
What are they doing inside their booths?
What are they thinking about?
It's probably hot in there.
Or maybe it's cold.
Do they have home?
A family?
What kind of people are they?" - the film in ironical manner trys to answer this questions.
It's a film about people from booths of the big city.
