A refugee writer/poet is trying to make relation with the city he has moved into but he fails. A man alone, the citizen of nowhere tries to find a link between his present and past. Suffering solitude Mr X is the search of a meaning for his life. Could this meaning be love, love of a human being. What if he leaves the city and its crazy people, could this be a concrete solution for him?
In three words this film is about: nostalgia, solitude and homelessness.
